Kanakarayankulam OIC Assaults And Hospitalizes Children

A father, mother and two of their three children were mercilessly attacked by police who went to inquire about a Muslim man’s land lease and the dispute arising with a Tamil man named Vasanthakumar over that. The two children, Vasanthakumar Kirubaharan aged 16 years and Vasanthakumar Kiriya aged 13 years have been admitted to the Mankulam hospital this evening (9 Sept.).

The mother, Vasanthakumar Sharmila, stated that “the land in Kanakarayankulam where the Dhas hotel stands belongs to us. And of the two acres we gave only an acre on lease for two years in 2010 to a Muslim man. The lease has been renewed again and came to an end in August 2017. Even though we have given in writing for lessee to leave the place he is running a shop there against the law and is supported by the police.”  

Continuing, she told this reporter, “We have complained many times to the Kanakarayankulam police but to no avail. In this situation, we started planting coconut trees in the remaining one acre for our livelihood. This morning while we were watering the trees the shop owner deliberately came to fight with us. The police came, had a look and went away but did not tell us anything. Then this evening, with the police hiding in the shop, the shop owner called us to come out. When my husband went there the Officer-in-Charge of the Kanakarayankulam Police severely attacked him. When I saw that, I ran to the place to help my husband. But the OIC attacked me too severely in spite of my being a woman, and also pulled my dress till the two sides tore. I was standing thus in the middle of the road.  When my 16 year-old son saw that, he tugged me away from the OIC and shouted ‘Let my mother go.’ Upon this the OIC twisted his neck so hard. That he was badly injured and had to be admitted to the hospital with a swollen neck.”

Amid tears streaming down her face, she went on, “At the same time the OIC punched my thirteen year old daughter hard in the stomach without any mercy. She is badly hurt and she too has been hospitalized. We have been threatened saying that my husband was once a member of the militancy. Unlike the shop owner, we have no money to heavily bribe the police with.”.

Five separate witnesses confirmed that it was the OIC who perpetrated the assault.

A resident interviewed for this story said, “The police can be bought. Kanakarayankulam is just North of Puliyankulam. The state is trying to settle the place with Sinhalese. The Police are the driving force against Tamils. The Omanthai Police Station is now called Omantha Police Station. Every police station in a Tamil place named after a Kulam (pond) is now the Police Station of such and such  Kulama. The state’s colonization project is going on at full speed even under our new government. Even Jaffna has not been spared. Kantharodai has been successfully renamed Kadurugoda.”

A Jaffna-based academic asked “How can such a police force offer us protection?” He continued, “I expected a lot more after the Police Commission was established. But the Commission is quite public in saying they cannot rein in the IGP. The IGP himself has been videoed assaulting a staff member for not attending a religious service he had arranged. The Police Commission did nothing. I venture that they are powerless to save this Kanakarayankulam family.”

Added another person in Jaffna who has worked for reconciliation, “We are all supposed to talk peace. However, I get the feeling that doing that just buys time for these rogues to do more of their dirty work without being restrained. For example, when our TNA talks peace, it is unable to raise the heinous crime of renaming Kantharodai as Kadurugoda. I say heinous because uprooting us from our culture, destroying our culture, is one dimension of Genocide. Isn’t it so? Here we have the sad, even terrorizing spectacle of the police trying to make a Tamil family lose its land and move out to depopulate the place of Tamils. I challenge the Police Commission to make real peace by acting decisively against this OIC. It is then that Tamils can be expected to talk peace.” (Reporting by N. Logathayalan from Jaffna)

    if sampanthan cannot take this case up in parliament the geriactric coward better resign now from politics without further putting the tamils into trouble with his spineless leadership.

    The correct thing for these people is to file action in the courts for their property dispute without going again and again to the corrupted police.

    Tamil leaders should start to clamour for the 13th amendment to be fully implemented or for india to take it back.By wasting time and being taken for a ride with a plus dangled in front of their nose,tamils are going to lose their lands with the help of the police.If land and police powers are devolved as per the present constitution then it will be more difficult to steal the lands like this.

      “The correct thing for these people is to file action in the courts..”.

      In the courts in the North with the police as defendants? Quite impossible. Poor people cannot afford justice.

      Did you not read a recent article describing the how the police, evaded court days, gave false testimony and spoke in Sinhala only? The translator later given by the courts was himself a policeman who was telling the policemen what to answer. Under such conditions who will bell the cat? Who is the lawyer who will do his work right, being dependent on the police for his job? There are cases filed by the police where they themselves have planted the so called evidence in poor illiterate former war areas . The people are scared to look up at their own lawyers or even understand their speech.

      How will they then fight the police in SL?

          Shankar, have you tried that? They will take a year to serve notice and then a lot more time to argue. Then there are lawyer’s fees for every dud appearance where nothing happens. Can poor people afford that? Even if the value of the land is worth more than these expenses, they may not have the money to last the legal process.
          Are you a lawyer by any chance to defend their horrible money spinner. I have seen lawyers disappearing just before a case is called on the excuse of being required in another court. The case is postponed. But you still need to pay the lawyer who will claim that he asked the Registrar to “keep it down” but it got called anyway.
          As a Back Panther once said, “burn it down brother, burn it down. It is not our house.”

            cynic

            you have a point.No i’am not a lawyer but i have a property dispute that has been in the courts for over 20 years and has about another twenty to run i think.

            The smart thing is not to give anybody anything on rent or lease in this country.

            Now that these people have gone and given on lease we can’t look at it in a racial way because it is happening all over the country.A guy in cinnamon gardens gave his house to a business and now can’t get rid of them and has to live in nugegoda.He doesn’t get even the rent now.

            I agree if the police support you then you can get rid of this man without going to courts.That is why i wish we had pushed for the 13th amendment to be fully implemented,then a tamil OIC would most probably have been in charge and if he behaved improperly wiggie could have dismissed him.

            Wiggie,sampanthan are silent for the last three years on the full implementation of the 13th.For three years in lieu of that what have they got for the tamils?These geriatric idiots must go and sleep at home and die in their sleep hopefully.In the meantime the other extreme too young sumanthiran is going full steam ahead like as if a political solution is round the corner.The immature idiot has to yet get experience of dealing with sinhala politicians.

    The victims of this horrendous violence both being children, the National Child Protection Agency must be notified and they should highlight the issue to bring the Police to Justice. The intent of course was double murder as is obvious.

    The Police Commission cannot be trusted anymore. The President, Mr. Sirisena’s turning a blind eye to such matters only encourages the view that he too is complicit in the genocide of the Tamils as was in 2009, May.

    How did the father’s injuries get left out of this news item? His injuries were internal and he is bleeding from his nose and mouth and was admitted may be later than this news item or in another ward.

    This article has been forwarded to the Police Commission. Hope they will act this time effectively.

    MP Charles Nirmalanathan has also complained to the relevant DIG, I believe DIG Vavuniya, who has promised an inquiry by tomorrow to Mr. Nirmalanathan who visited them at the hospital. Mr. Nirmalanathan has protested because that OIC is still on active duty and the witnesses are scared to come out and testify.

    Ranil will never dilute the Rapist Police and Army concentration but out-rightly lying that it is only at 13.000 where Chaitanya government had. It is 10 times greater than these liars telling to IC (150,000). The biggest crook Reginald is transferred out by Ayatollahs back Jaffna to keep it under the rapist Army’s Jackboot. We saw how Canada was beaten back by the Middle East Power. We show how EU was cornered in MMDA. Sumanthiran, Sampanthar are do different. TNA was wiped by Ranil after 2015. In that matter Sampanthar caught parrot and offered to cat. In the coming election Sampanthar must stay home and leave Tamils alone. Without a Singapore- Malaysia Solution Rapist Sinhala Police Army cannot be controlled.

    The police are thought to be the most corrupt department in the country. They are also the most sadistic, judging by a history of assaults, torture and deaths of citizens in custody – confirmed by UN Rapporteurs.
    Now they assist/enforce the ‘Sinhalisation’ of the northern province.
    The police have assaulted citizens over the many decades past.
    In this case, the IGP and/or the Police Commission should take action by interdicting – not transferring – the Omanthai policemen and serving them with a ‘show cause’ notice followed by an inquiry by persons unconnected with the police.
    The matter of the shooting deaths of the two motorcycle riding undergraduates has not yet been inquired into, by a court of law.
    If this had happened in the South, by now there would have been a ‘hue & cry’, not only in parliament.
    That Tamils are “second class citizens” in the eyes of the law is confirmed by this incident.

    The government should not get involved in settling Sinhalese in the North and East. Let the natural human settlements take place. Aren’t we a single nation? why then do we draw a distinction between Sinhalese and Tamils? Let us consider all as belonging to one ethnicity- call all Sinhalese or Sri Lankans. In the historical past the generic Sinhalese included those who considered themselves Sinhalese even if they were not biologically too close If Sinhala only had not been forced by law the Tamils would have over time learnt Sinhalese as I noticed during my service in the North during that period. It is good to have a single ethnicity and the Sinhalese have in the past absorbed other ethnic groups.Left to natural forces a single nation may emerge. But not by force. Many persons in a minority like to be considered as part of the nation and include themselves in the majority. But they re-assert their ethnicity if they are subject to discrimination.

The driver was a Tamil guy and I was talking to him in my broken tamil and Sometimes in International language ( dumb people’s like talking). After 10 minutes he stopped the truck at a road side tea boutique for dinner.
    After having our dinner Suddenly he told me Sir, I want to get some changed money with 100 RS Notes to give to ROADSIDE WAITING BEGGERS . I was thinking About the Murugandy Hindu Temple and Some time few beggers were staying there.

    We understand why the government do not want to police and land powers to provincial councils. They wanted to Sinhalese police and military in order to govern the Tamil people under oppression. They will never take action against this policeman or Muslim man who paid thousands to this Policeman. They will fabricate another story even saying they found bombs and they are helping LTTE.

    This Rapist Police brutality is human right violation with explicit racism and favoritism.

    Yahapalanaya PM Ranil’s assistant, the Commissioner of SLHRC has to take up this matter and have the OIC punished. The SLHRC cannot function as a branch office of 8th graders in Kotte. The commissioner should know Tamils are also taxed and she should make her available for Tamils too instead for Muslims riots or police brutality on Sinhalese.

    This is how the Muslim-Sinhala Goverment has organized Mahawelli Project Colonization. Army and police forcefully beating the families and chasing out them to give it Sinhala Muslims Colonizers.

    Shankar is well off the mark. He is barking at the wrong tree!
    Sampanthan is not there to settle civil disputes. Nor he is the person in charge of law and order.
    This type of vicious and shameful behaviour of Police is not only in the North but in the South as well. This is a well-known fact.
    The Sri Lankan Police Force is corrupt from top to bottom.
    Last week an elderly Tamil man protested against the rampant corruption against the Kilinochchi Police by climbing a tree not far away from the stage where the Minister for Justice, Chief Justice, Judges, Officials from the Judiciary, lawyers and others were seated. The protester even named the Policemen who was harassing him to give bribe.
    In this case, the dispute is between a Tamil the lesser and a Muslim the lessee. It is a civil dispute.
    The OIC should have advised the parties to file a case in the court.
    Instead, the OIC took the law into his own hands and dispensed jungle justice.
    The lesser who is the owner of the hotel must have entertained the OIC lavishly many times over.
    Or he must have paid a fixed sum of money as kappam every month!
    It is obvious the OIC was indebted to the hotel owner and was returning the favour.
    It is not enough to transfer the OIC out of Kanagarayankulam. The errant Policeman at Kilinochchi was transferred not dismissed from service.
    A proper inquiry should be conducted and the OIC should be dealt with under the law governing Police discipline.
    I know to ask the President/Prime Minister to take disciplinary action against the OIC is like asking for the moon.
    Ceylon is a country where murderers, drug smugglers, corrupt officials are getting away scot-free.

      This is why Police Dept should come under provincial jurisdiction. These guys are brought from the south with political influence, they earn as much as possible while they are there and then move to another area leaving the population in a worse state than it was.

      This is all happening because of the gutless leadership of TNA, self serving and self centred, and not for the people. It is about the administration of law and order.

      Blaah blaah blaah baeah……Everybody know what is the right way of serving justice. No pointing in teaching us a PhD on that Thanga.

      The question if Sampanthar knows it? Your answer suggests that he doesn’t. Where it is said people rep has no responsibility to his voters ensuring their civil liberty not violated and they get proper Justice in civil cases too? If the Muslim man thinking the Tamil will be able to enforce the lease contract without hindrances from police, would he have refused to leave the property? Give me your account of what is going to happen to this police rowdy if that Tamil man goes to a court. Are you saying Arabia will make him too to sit next to Gnanasara in Welikada? Remember Gnanam did not touch one single Muslim so far. A dirty rowdy in the police uniform beating a man, his wife and all children at his house is only civil case and that is why Sampanthar should not get into that?

      You say south also has police brutality. Is that your argument that South has only Tamil polices there and the civilians having trouble of having them explained? Why did you run to Canada if you have had only the problem in Lankawe all what the Sinhalese have? Even the small minority Sinhalese went there told that they were attacked in the Tamils issue.

      Is that because Sinhalese also had JVP terrorism and their youths too were shot, now Sumanthiran went and America said that TNA is interested in Secret Solution only so UNHRC has to give more time to Lankawe to comply with Resolution 30/1. Could you guys speaks these in Tamil in North East , i.e you guys don’t want Federalism, Police in not brutalizing Tamils any more than it is doing to Sinhalese, There is all over south 3:1 one Rapist Army placed too, Vijayakala is a liar when she said there is a difficult situation exist in North for women and children. You should tell these instead of Sampanthar and Sumanthiran lying during the election time you guy are working for Internal Self-determination. TNA is not just have lost SJV’s moral height, but is has become as a fraudulent organizations with dodgers and liars. Sumanthiran said in South that TNA is not looking for Federal Status; but when he went to North, he back tracked it.

      “Sampanthan is not there to settle civil disputes.”

      so a police OIC assaulting men,women and children to the extent that the children are hospitalised is a civil matter for you.I coudn’t care a damn for a guy who idiotically went and gave a lease of his land without just fencing and keeping it,but i do care when a bastard in uniform comes and assaults children especially.

      You also seem to be a geriatric one supporting another geriatric.Haven’t you heard of something called retirement.In our public service it seems to be 55 years.For our politicians and influence peddlers like you it is 85.In tamilnadu it was 95 with karu.

      Finally the people are suffering. Just before you meet your maker you can do some gardening,fishing,golf,travelling to see the temples in tamilnadu.yoga exercises,meditation,say hi to your old enemies and say all is forgiven etc.

      Then some new blood can be brought in to rejuvenate our politics.Politicians are like diapers.Countries that change them regularly will come up,others will be continuing to wallow in the stink.

      What has sampanthan achieved since the war ended in 2009?Can you tell me please?Hat have you achieved with all your writings for the last 10 years thanga?

      What has that bearded 78 year old eccentric who calls himself the CM achieved?

    I am one of those who honestly believed when Sirisena became the President things would change for the better in SL. Now it has become worst than ever before. Even the President is directly involved in protecting accused murderer by sending him to represent Sirisena in Mexico when he was wanted by CID to appear at their office. Similarly today when Gota’s case came up there were no Govt lawyers present. All these show a similar pattern of behavior of President Sirisena . Even during the last local govt election Sirisena acted against PM who helped Sirisena to become the President. Where is Sirisena taking this county? Why is the Minister of Justice and Minister of Law and Order doing nothing about these. Even up to date Gnanasara is not wearing the jumper, why is he given a special treatment. He has been found fault by the courts. Its time even the Chief Justice seem to be part of the game that is being played by Sirisena. I am sad to see Sri Lanka going to dogs under Sirisena. I know I made an error in thinking and wishing things are going to change in SL after Sirisena.

      “Where is Sirisena taking this county?”

      The honest truth is that even he doesn’t know. This is what happens when you have some one on top who is greedy to lead but does not have the knowledge, competency or the ability to delegate to people with the competency.

      His only interest right now is to some how or other get elected for another term.

    In other news Gamarala comes up with another “I got files” comment.

    “”I am stopping short of commenting on it further because I know the reasons for the delays and holding back of those projects by the previous regime and this regime. So don’t make me to expose them in public and I hope the relevant authorities will treat this as an eye-opener and reminder and work on them immediately protecting their political values,” the President told a gathering in Hambantota.”

    As I have stated many times , these Muslims show a different face to the Tamils and another to the Sinhalese. In the Sinhalese areas or when dealing with Sinhalese they are docile amicable and accommodating and want to live in amity and harmony , not because they love the Sinhalese but because they are afraid of the Sinhalese state power , armed forces and police and the consequences if they misbehave. However when dealing with Tamils or in the Tamil areas , they show are completely different face and character. They are nasty, cunning, conniving, arrogant, unreasonable and plan and plot as to how they can steal what ever they can from the Tamil peoples. As seen in the east. They feel that they can get away with this , as they know that the Tamils are now politically weak and defenceless, with no one genuine to champion for their rights. They also cunningly make use and play on the Sri Lankan state, Sinhalese armed forces/police and the general Sinhalese racism and animosity towards the Tamils to their advantage. In the Sinhalese areas the Sinhalese contain Islamic extremism and keep the Muslims in their place , through Sinhalese state power , armed forces and police, however when dealing with Tamils or in the Tamil areas , the very same Sinhalese state, police and armed forces help these opportunistic cunning conniving selfish South Indian immigrant origin fake Arab Sri Lankan Muslims , who are really Tamils themselves to commit crimes on the Tamils , steal the assets and lands of the Tamils in the north and east. It is these illegal Sinhalese colonists and the Sinhalese state who are keeping the Muslims powerful in the east and allowing them to rule, despite the fact , that the Tamils are the largest population in the east and are the original indigenous population of this area. Now it is happening in the north too.

    Contd: The ancestors of these Tamils from the north and east took pity and gave refuge to these ancestors of these Muslims , who were fleeing persecution , from Portuguese and the Sinhalese to settle in their lands , as fellow Tamils and humans and now their descendants are suffering from this kind misplaced decision. These people in the name of their religion and a fake Arab origin and egged on by the Sinhalese state want to steal the lands and homes of the very same people who took pity on them and gave them refuge. No wander the west is vary of Muslim refugees, as they are also now seeing the results. We need police and land powers for the Tamil North and East to stop further dispossession of the Tamil population and their lands being forcible stolen by Sinhalese and Muslims , who are supported by Sinhalese armed forces, police and the state.

    This incident must be raised in Parliament and an inquiry commission set up to look into it and the costs of such Commission must be recovered from the culprits This ‘Sinhalisation’ must be stopped by the government by issuing instructions that any name change of places should be done only with the approval of the Provincial Council even if it is a central government function carried out by the provincial or local authority. The government must not allow radical Sinhalese to take the law into their own hands. They must be charged even if they are supported by the majority of the Sinhalese. The government belongs to all including the Tamils. Let us show them that it is so by punishing the errant Sinhalese.

    It is high time we gave up hopes on politicians, they have proved that they are clear exponents of the vilest species representing Homo sapiens . Many and varying are the reasons why our politicians fall into this category. We daily hear of unjust and cruel treatment experienced by the poor and the suffering while politician’s immediate family,kith and kin ,their extended gang of cohorts are sucking the life blood of the Nation. From president downwards they are trying to show their clean hands but no white apparel or’ sil redi’ can transform them. Those politicians who think their hands are clean should come to the fore to tell your so called leaders that
    enough is enough.There is no other way, we see almost daily blatant violations of Law and justice. The recent incident appearing in CT I am sure would have brought tears to it’s readers but not to the politicians. Will the President, PM or the Minister for Law and order take action to bring justice to this poor family? no, not in my wildest dreams. One thing is clear, things will become worse before they can get better.

    What is the use of all the pomp and ceremony, and genuflecting before comatose monks with your butt up in the air day after day, if you can’t protect innocent, helpless citizens from such appalling treatment by your own dreadful Police?

    If not CT, English educated Sinhalese would not have come to know about this incident. Thanks CT.

    There was an incident on 31st August at ismailpuram varuthalaipiddy in Amparai district, where the house contents and a three wheeler belongs to a young Hindu family was set fire by a gang believed to be Muslims, for the family’s refusal to convert to Islam. The family was under threats previously and the police took no action. Nearly nine relatives of this family have already been converted owing the threats intimidation and sometimes by financial inducement.

    Police have not taken any criminal action although this family, husband wife and a three months old baby, escaped narrowly from fire. Police have entered this incident as a civil claim. More details and the photograph of burnt out three wheeler, house with family members appears in Batinatham website (tamil) .

    As usual none of the Tamil politicians has shown any interest or come to rescue by words or deeds.

    This Muslim man came under they guise of leasing the land for a certain period but his real intention was , once he was in , to forcibly take over the land from this poor helpless peasant Tamil family , who are the legal owners of this land. As usual the local Sinhalese police and establishment is in cohorts with this Muslim, as they will help any non Tamil to marginalise the island’s Tamils and steal their lands . This is what the so called forestry and archeological department is doing in the north and east. Targeting Tamil people and their lands for Sinhalese colonisation and settlement and trying to take over them under the guise of forest preservation and archeological significance ,as ancient Buddhist artifacts are buried there. Strange only seem to be buried in Tamil lands , Hindu temples and Tamil areas, no where else. Muslims have been doing this in the east for some time , using funds obtained from Gulf Arab states, their politicians and the Sinhalese state police and armed forces to steal Tamil lands and now starting this in the north too. During the LTTE rule the Tamil people never had to suffer such indignities in their own lands in the north and east . These Muslims and Sinhalese were scared and knew their place. Tamil people despite hardships lived safely and crime free in their lands. No Muslim or Sinhalese would have dared to have behaved in this manner. We need our own land powers and police as per sec 13a and these Sinhalese police and army, including the fake forestry and archeological department should be packed and sent back to the south. Tamil people should refuse to do business with these treacherous Muslims and boycott their business or refuse to sell or lease their lands to them. We have to safeguard ourselves and whatever remains of our ancient land , that has not been stolen.

      Lands and Hindu temples released by the Army are seized immediately by Forest and Archeological Dept with the help of Buddhist monks. But Hindu religious affairs minister and the department remains silent. All Ceylon Hindu congress and other Hindu organisations temples too don’t care. In western countries there are thousands of srilankan Hindus and Hundreds of temples managed by srilankan Tamil Hindus but they too have no interest and remain indifferent. When there is no one to take care of, let entire srilankan Hindus diminish and vanish soon so that the country will be free from these pliant creatures.

    our judicial system is highly corrupt…it starts from top judges itself…what more examples anyone needs? look at former CJ’s sarath Silva & mohan pieris. They are top notch bribe takers. Police is a highly corrupt establishment serving the politicians of this country. Nothing will change unless a
    honest leader with a backbone is elevated as a president of this country.

    The Ven Venduruwe Upali Thera is the Anunayake of the Asgiriya Chapter, one of the most important Buddhist chapters located in Kandy, the heart of Buddhism in Sri Lanka. Recently he publicly advised Gotabaya “Some people have described you as Hitler. Be a Hitler. Go with the military and take the leadership of this country.”

    With police of the ilk of the Kanakarayankulam OIC, who needs a Gotler?
