June 23, Colombo: A Sri Lankan court today remanded five Muslim youths for threatening the staff of a Muslim-owned No Limit store demanding them to close the shop.

Colombo Additional Magistrate Nishantha Peiris remanded the five Muslim youth until June 27 for threatening the No Limit showroom in Wellawatta demanding them to close the store.

The police acting on a tip-off arrested the five Muslims causing chaos and threatening the Muslim businesses to close down the shops after a fire destroyed the No Limit store in Panadura.

The suspects have used a three-wheeler and motorcycle to travel and threatened the No Limit staff to close the Wellawatta showroom as other store owners had done, Hiru News reported.

The Police Criminal Investigations Department had informed the court that the CCTV cameras at the premises had recorded the suspects threatening the store staff.

Sri Lanka law enforcement authorities as well as government and civil organizations have constantly urged the communities not to fall prey for rumors and provoke communal clashes.
