Acting on a tip-off, the police yesterday chased away Ex- MP&Ex- Northern Provincial Councillor M.K. Shivajilingam and four others who had gathered at the late LTTE leader Velupillai Prabhakaran’s Vevetithurai home to commemorate the latter’s 64th birth anniversary with a cake, candles and decorations.
Police had been informed that a large crowd was coming there to celebrate the anniversary.
When the police entered the house in the morning, only five of them were ready to cut the cake and light candles.
Prabhakaran was born and bred in that house, but today it has been abandoned.
