Colombo DIG Pujitha Jayasundera has
informed the Shakthi TV, that there is a threat to the life of
journalist J. Sri Ranga, who presents a programme called "Minnal"
Sri Ranga’s programme of last week featured the assassination
of TNA Parliamentarian Nadarajah Raviraj. The threat was
subsequent to this programme.
The Free Media Movement (FMM), yesterday said there had been
threat to Sri Ranga’s life even on earlier occasions and
complaints had been made to the Police, but nothing had been
the progress of the investigations. Since journalists were
killed in the recent past the threat to Sri Ranga’s life cannot
be taken lightly, the FMM said
The FMM requested the authorities to initiate investigations
