M.K. Shivajilingam arrested for avoiding court proceedings

Former Northern Province Councillor M.K. Shivajilingam has been arrested by the Valvettithurai Police for avoiding court proceedings.

The arrested was made following a warrant issued by the Point Pedro Magistrate court over a case filed in 2018 against him.

A case was filed by the Police Department charging  Sivajilingam with damage of state property during a road block protest in Mullaitivu in 2018.

The protest prevented Government officials from conducting a survey on more than 600 acres of land to be allocated to the Sri Lankan Navy.
