0 17

Security in the Kinniya police division was strengthened yesterday following a mob attack on Trincomalee district Parliamentarian S.M. Thowfeek’s house.

Angry crowds thronged the MPs house and damaged property after a ferry across Kinniya Kurunjankeni Lagoon capsized killing six persons including children. Eastern Province Governor  deployed to rescue the missing persons, a Navy spokesman said. Police said that the death toll could rise further. Police and Navy have already launched a search operation for the missing. Meanwhile area residents protested near the Kinniya Divisional Secretariat claiming that the construction of the bridge across the lagoon connecting Kinniya and Kurunjankulam is purposefully being delayed by the authorities. They said that the ferry is used as a bridge instead of the existing bridge as it is under construction.
