Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan alias Karuna Amman, who made a controversial statement about the killing of army personnel at Elephant Pass, has made a controversial revelation yesterday (26 June) while participating in a television program.

Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan has disclosed that he received arms and money during the period of President R. Premadasa's administration and that he himself took over the arms.

He has also said that he has never spoken in a defamatory manner regarding Sri Lanka Army and that he is appreciative of the program carried out against Muslim extremism by Ven. Gnanasara Thera.

He has also said that he will definitely get elected to parliament by winning the next general election.

Petition to Supreme Court to arrest Karuna

Kaduwela Municipal Councilor Boseth Kalahepathirana has filed a fundamental rights petition in the Supreme Court demanding the immediate arrest of Karuna Amman alias Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan and ordering the authorities to enforce the law.

The petition has been filed against the statement made by Murali Muralitharan on the 19th of August at a rally at Digamadulla, claiming that he , who murdered over 3000 Army soldiers in one night at Elephant Pass, was a person deadlier than the COVID-19 pandemic.

The petitioner has asked the Supreme Court to take legal action against him as it was a voluntary statement and as an admission that he committed murder.

Acting IGP, Attorney General and Karuna Amman have been named as respondents of the petition.
