Terror suspects buried unceremoniously
The remains of 10 suspected terrorists who died in a suicide blast in Sainthamaruthu, Kalmunai, last week were buried today, sans religious ceremony, police said.
Police Spokesman SP Ruwan Gunasekara told journalists that this was on the request of Islamic leaders. However, the remains of the six children who died in the blast were buried according to Islamic custom, he said.
Gunasekara further said that as per the emergency regulations now in place, the three forces have the power to carry out search operations, as well as apprehend suspects and suspicious property.
The spokesman also warned that the Police would take tough action against anyone spreading misinformation or pictures or videos that could destabilise the peaceful coexistence of the public.
