Army orders stoppage of temple construction

An army major has ordered Sadhana Tila Buddhist temple to stop all
development activities.

Sources say a group of 12 army personnel led by Major Anik from
Babuchara army camp raided the temple at 2:30pm today (25.12.2010) and ordered the
stoppage of all construction works there.

The army men also took away about 500 pieces of bricks piled up at the temple.

The stolen bricks, meant for the construction of the temple, have been
put under the charge of Commanding Officer of Dighinala Zone, Lt. Col.

The army also ordered the temple management committee to appear at
Dighinala zone tommorrow (26.12.2010).

The army have been trying to occupy the temple land for a long time.
During the state of emergency between 2007 and 2008, it made several
unsuccessful attempts to capture it by force.

Later, the army fought a legal battle through a settler proxy, which it lost.
