Several police teams were deployed to arrest Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) General Secretary the Ven. Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara Thera on charges of disturbing, obstructing and threatening police officers and committing acts bound to cause racial and religious disharmony among various communities.

DIG Priyantha Jayakody in a statement said that following a request made by the Police, the Hulftsdorp No: 4 Magistrate issued a court order preventing the Thera from leaving the country.

He said there were several com-plaints lodged against him and the Thera had not reported to the Police Organized Crime Division when summoned to do so. (Chaturanga Pradeep)

    Harassment? When a person orders others to burn, kill or oppress, do you want him to petted instead? If a member of the minority community attacks you or your property, and the police go after him,is it harassment?

    The underworld has lot to learn how they can evade arrest.

    Neither Sivaji lingam nor Wigi stirred any communal disharmony against any race , religion so how can be a bald head and the knee could be compared in this instance

    How can you find the culprit when you keep him in hiding.... If a magistrates court's locker room in this country is not safe for valuable documents to convict an accused, hiding a convict is a child's play.
