E-mail Print
A request made by the Chilaw police for a court order banning the slaughter of animals at the Chilaw Munneswaran Sri Badrakali Kovil was rejected by the Chilaw District Judge and Magistrate Jagath A.Kahandagama.
 
The Magistrate said imposing a ban as requested by the police was not within the jurisdiction of that court.
 
Police earlier filed a motion seeking a court order for a ban on animal slaughter in response to a complaint made by General Secretary of the Thunhela Jathika Vyaparaya  Ven. Omare Kassapa Thera.
