Long before the episode, SL Agriculture Department officials had inspected the lands and were appreciative of the way Ms Mangaleswary had utilised the farmlands in an eco-friendly manner. She had planted suitable crops such as Tapioca in between the coconut palms.
The violent assault by SLPA officials has come as a shock to the victim's family, the TNA parliamentarian said.
Mangaleswary's family was using the Chena (slash-and-burn) farm lands at the locality for decades.

The unitary State of genocidal Sri Lanka has been systematically targeting the Trincomalee Harbour, which is the fifth largest natural harbour in the world, for Sinhalicisation through decades of militarization, foreign meddling and so-called development in the Eastern Province paving way for the entire Trincomalee district to be subjected to large-scale Sinhala colonisation.
Four of the seven ports in the entire island, brought under the SLPA’s mandate are situated in the North-East.
Sinhalicisation of Tamil homeland is being accelerated hand in hand with the militarisation being carried out by the occupying SL Navy, which is being groomed by the US Pacific Command and through the so-called development of SL Ports in the North-East with the assistance of Asian Development Bank (ADB).
