An ancient Hindu site called Akaththiyar Thaapanam was destroyed .

A Siva temple located at an ancient Hindu site called Akaththiyar Thaapanam, at Kangku-veali in the Moothoor division of the Trincomalee district, where Hindus gather especially to perform the Aadi Amaavaasai ritual for ancestors, was destroyed without any traces.

The location of the temple is under the control of Sri Lanka Army stationed at a nearby Sinhala village, Neelaappola.

The Tamil villagers who were shocked and wept to see the temple wiped. They are scared now whether this is a prelude to wipe out their traditional village as well.
