Dubbing the recent acts of violence targeting its citizens in Tamil Nadu as an attempt to tarnish its friendly ties with India [ Images ], Sri Lanka [ Images ] has lodged a strong protest with New Delhi [ Images ] over the incidents of assaults on Buddhist monks.

“The ministry of external affairs has lodged strong protest with the Indian government through its high commission in New Delhi and the deputy high commission in Chennai over the incidents of assaults on Sri Lankan Buddhist monks in the state of Tamil Nadu,” a Sri Lankan High Commission release said.

It said Sri Lanka regretted the recent incidents of “intimidation” of its nationals, particularly instances of violent assaults on Buddhist monks in Thanjavur and at the central railway station in Chennai.

Advising its nationals to exercise ‘caution’ when undertaking visits to Tamil Nadu, the release said such assaults were carried out by “extreme elements with vested interests in attempting to tarnish our friendly relations with India”.
