Feb 20, Colombo: Sri Lanka police say that the violent Buddhist monks of Buddhist extremist organization Sinhala Ravaya will be arrested and produced in court.
The Buddhist monks who conducted a violent protest in front of the Colombo Fort railway Station this week are accused of violating the bail conditions of a previous case.
The Sinhala Ravaya monks were granted bail on January 30 for holding an illegal protest outside the Prime Minister's office. They were subjected to strict bail conditions and warned not to engage in similar protests.
Police sources say that the videos of the protest are being studied to identify the offenders.
Meanwhile, a group of monks and laymen participating in the protest against cattle slaughter brutally killed a young man outside the Colombo Fort railway station before camera. Police are investigating to identify the culprits of the intimidation.
One Buddhist monk has already been remanded for attempting to commit self-immolation in public protesting cattle slaughter.
Several monks were seen fasting yesterday also. Several hundred people attended Sinhala Ravaya's protest on Tuesday. The protester s blocked a busy road in the Sri Lankan capital causing a massive traffic jam and public inconvenience.
Militant monk organizations have become a serious threat to the government's reconciliation process and the civil society leaders have urged the Sri Lankan government to take urgent steps to curtail the extremists' activities.
