Soldiers try to force Kugan’s wife to sign Sinhala document: MP

by
Four army personnel forced the wife of missing JVP dissident group Jana Aragalaya Movement member and activist Kugan Muruganathan, to sign a document in Sinhala, which she could not understand, parliamentarian Ajith Kumara told the Sunday Times.

On March 23, around 4 p.m., four army personnel had come to Kugan’s house in Achchuveli and forced Kugan’s wife to sign the document, which she had refused to do.

Then, several persons clad in civilian clothes were seen monitoring Kugan’s house from the street, the MP said.

“I have made a compliant to the IGP with regard to this incident,” he said. The parliamentarian added that, Kugan’s family, fearing for their safety, had left the house next day (24). According to their lawyer, they have complained to the Achuveli Police, Jaffna Red Cross and the Human Rights Commission of this incident.
