    In the late 70s there were similar incidents and bank robberies in Jaffna. Shortly after the LTTE was born.

    This indicate that there are remnants of the LTTE and looks like it's trying to come back again. Security forces must be on alert and these types of gangsters should be wiped out.

    This type of things happening all over Sri Lanka, if that happens in Noth then it is LTTE, what about if happens in south?

    There were concerns by citizens that gang warfare and robberies were taking place in Jaffna for some time. No action was taken by the administrators. Therefore this the result. Strong action is required by the Government and the NPC as soon as possible. It should be neutralized. I don't think there is any reincarnation of LTTE.

    Mrs B and M. Senanayake planned Mahaweli water to north and hope for multiracial settlements in Wanni. But dictator JR in his thuggish and narrow minded way stopped it

    Nothing to do with the revival of a LTTE, its all about rogue elements making use of a weak/corrupt government and police hierarchy failing to up hold law. Sadly its the innocent Jaffna civilians suffering from these terror elements.

    Leave them alone. There are trying to flower. Don't nip them in the bud.
