The Aava gang operative in the North is a group of thugs banded together with the knowledge of former Defense Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa says Cabinet spokesman Minister of Health Rajitha Senaratna and adds that he doesn’t see any wrong in creating such a gang.
He said this at the press meeting held at the Department of Information today (2nd) to apprise the media of decisions taken at the cabinet meeting.
He had said the gang operates according to the needs of the former Defense Secretary and the Brigadier who created the gang is known to him.
The Minister said the gang would have been banded to repress other terrorist groups that were operative during the past but there is no need for such groups anymore. However, he doesn’t see any wrong in creating such groups during that period Minister Senaratna had said.
