The Sri Lankan government is to take action against Indian Television channel NDTV for having telecast photographs showing that the Kebithigollewa explosion in 2006 was planned by the Sri Lankan forces, External Affairs Ministry said.

“The media including the NDTV should check the background of a story before publishing it,” Ministry spokesman Rodney Perera said.

Ministry Secretary Karunatilaka Amunugama said the Sri Lankan High Commission in India had been asked to contact the NDTV and clarify matters since these photos and the attached story could mislead the people.

“We have also sent a video of the real incident to the High Commission to be forwarded to the NDTV,” the spokesman said. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    Highlighting others issues to cover their own issues. We all know who the Indian are. They are going to town on America's orders. Just like Iran, Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan did prior to the US turning their guns on them. Poor souls.
