A group calling themselves the ‘AAVA Gangsters’ has claimed responsibility for the sword attack on two police officers in the Chunnakam market area.  

The group said the incident was a retaliation for the death of two Jaffna university students who were allegedly shot the by police.

The group warned the police and the public to expect such incidents in the future as retaliation against activities that were destroying the culture and society of Jaffna.   

A rough translation of the poster put up on the walls of Jaffna claimed responsibility for other sword attacks in Jaffna and reasoned that those attacked were violent towards women.

The group stressed that punishment will be meted- out to those engaged in activities that would destroy the social norms and ideas in Jaffna. “We, as Tamils cannot witness the destruction of our culture in Jaffna which is considered “the land of culture” of Tamil Eelam,” a rough translation of the poster read.  

The group also hinted that Tamil policemen would not be spared if they were to be part of the acts which were considered a detriment to the society. “Although there were certain Sinhala Police Officers who supported the tragic incident the Tamil Police Officers played the lead role. According to the orders of Judge Ilancheliyan we will mete out appropriate punishment to all the Tamil Police Officers who carried the shooting under the direction of Sub Inspector Srigajan,” the poster said.

The sword attacks were a measure of preventing social evils in the peninsula which saved many villages from robberies and burglaries and many women from violence, the group claimed.    

In statement previously, the police claimed the policemen were injured while trying to stop a robbery.(Pradeep Kumara)

    Police has to find out whom are AAVA and take necessary action to stop them if they are illegal urgently

    Now that Army Intelligence is non operational these are results we get ... hope the commander in chief take appropriate measures. Now it might be swords next would be guns.

    Mr. Nalin you have a great sense of humor.

    vithura Tuesday, 25 October 2016 01:33 PM

    The police should work closely with the community to prevent the collapse of law and order and not to leave any room for the emergence of violent groups to justify their actions.

    Kadmin Tuesday, 25 October 2016 01:35 PM

    Sorry that's what the Police is for. This type of unlawful acts/groups wouldn't help revival of Jaffna.

    Nalin Tuesday, 25 October 2016 01:44 PM

    AAVA-- GIYAA!

    rasheed Tuesday, 25 October 2016 01:45 PM

    Bala Tuesday, 25 October 2016 01:53 PM

    So it is Tamil culture for youth to go out at midnight possibly after liquor. May be new culture !!

    Raj Tuesday, 25 October 2016 02:23 PM

    Destroy this AAVA group before they destroy another generation of young People. Also find out who are the real people behind AAVA!

    Nihal Amarasekera Tuesday, 25 October 2016 02:27 PM

    If it's real, the real losers will be peace seeking/enjoying Jaffna public, whatever claims to the contrary.

    janith Tuesday, 25 October 2016 02:35 PM

    couldn't agree more. :D

    Sith Tuesday, 25 October 2016 02:51 PM

    It's a political game to change the votes for election. Innocent people are only affected.

    This is part of " sahajeewanaya " we are trying to promote.

    Joseph Tuesday, 25 October 2016 04:32 PM

    I do not understand the logic. The police got injured whilst trying to foil a robbery. So was the robbery a fake ?

    shanthapriya Tuesday, 25 October 2016 04:56 PM
