Kattankudy-based weekly paper Vara Uarikal’s Chief Editor Puvi Rahmathullah was allegedly attacked by an unidentified group this evening.

Chillie powder was thrown into his eyes before being attacked while he was walking in the Kattankudy area. The victim was admitted to the Batticaloa General Hospital.

He also came under attack in 2009 too. (Rifthi Ali)

    Attacks on mediamen have become too common and frequent. All the more reason, some of our leaders MUST face the world courts.

    everyone knows now that if any journalist ever dare criticize higher level people, they will be assulted by the same people who was behind Lasantha's killings.
