Hunt for buried Tiger gold stash at Sivanagar


BY Dinasena Ratugamage

The security forces have started excavating a location at Sivanagar in Puthukuduirrippu because they have received that the LTTE buried a large haul of gold there during the war.

The security forces have obtained a court order and are carrying out excavations under the supervision of Mullaitivu court officials.

Three weeks ago the security forces arrested 14 persons including women who had travelled to the former LTTE stronghold from the south and carrying out excavations there.

The ongoing excavations are being jointly conducted by the army, police and the STF.
