Sri Lankan Police kill mentally challenged Tamil Youth in Colombo
Racism takes many facets in Sri Lanka.
Nearly 30,000 Tamils killed in the recent war in the Tamil regions.
Over 250,000 Tamil IDPs detained in interim camps under poor living conditions even after 5 months military victory over the Tamil rebels. IDPs are said to be resettled to the world when in reality they are forced to move to a new interim camp or prison.
Sri Lanka remains the lowest ranked for press freedom as no media is still allowed to enter the interim camps, the previous war zone or Tamil regions of north & east.
However, the recent attack on a Tamil youth by Sri Lankan Police tops the list. When it seems humanity can not take a lower blow from racisim in Sri Lanka, the Sri Lanakn Security Forces strive to beat their own records.
The mentally challenged Tamil youth was begging for mercy while beaten and forced to drown by the Sri Lankan Police in Colombo.
Sri Lanka Police Constable beat a mentally ill Tamil youth and forced the youth to drown near the sea near Bambalapitya, Colombo, railway station Thursday. The youth was identified as Balavarnam Sivakumar, 26, of Ratmalana, according to media reports in Colombo, which belatedly listed the youth's identity. "The entire country watched in horror, as a group of heavily built men attacked the mentally unstable youth with wooden poles while he pleaded for mercy, when it was telecast on several news bulletins on Thursday night," Sri Lankan Daily Mirror News Paper said.
