CBK wants ‘strange happenings in Trinco’ probed

President Chandrika Kumaratunga yesterday directed security authorities to probe what she described as “strange happenings in Trincomalee.”

Official sources said that the President ordered the probe after she was told of a move to undermine security in the East particularly after she took over defence and interior portfolios. The sources said that since the UNF and the LTTE reached a cease-fire in February last year, 28 persons were killed in the district, six of them within the past couple of days.
