Kumara traveled to Pakistan in 2011 after getting a job as a mechanical engineer in a clothing factory in Faisalabad. After a year, he joined Rajco Industries from Sialkot as Managing Director and was the only Sri Lankan national working in the factory.
IMAGE: The Sri Lankan cabinet on Tuesday approved 2.5 million Sri Lankan rupees (about 935,000 rupees) as compensation for Nilushi and her family.
IMAGE: Priyantha Kumara was brutally lynched before her body was set on fire. The murder by Islamic radicals shocked the world.
IMAGE: The Sri Lankan Parliament, President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa condemned the brutal murder and expressed hope that the government of Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan will bring the culprits to justice.
IMAGE: Ruling and opposition MPs in Sri Lankan parliament have demanded an apology from Pakistani Defense Minister Pervez Khattak for his callous remarks about the lynching.
Khattak said on Monday that the appalling lynching of a mob in Sialkot should not be linked to the Pakistani government’s recent decision to lift the ban on extremist Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakista, saying “killings are taking place” when young people become moved. Shocking!
