The lack of a proper investigation into the Easter attack means that the issue is not yet fully resolved.

Sri Lanka’s acting President Ranil Wickremesinghe sought help from the British government and its intelligence services in the investigation of the 2019 Easter suicide attacks.

Nine suicide bombers of the National Thowheed Jamaat, a local Islamic extremist group affiliated with ISIS, targeted three Catholic churches and several luxury hotels on 21 April 2019. About 270 people, including 11 Indians, were killed in that incident while more than 500 were injured. That attack badly affected Sri Lanka’s tourism industry.

Wickremesinghe said the lack of a proper investigation into the Easter attack meant that the issue was not yet fully resolved.

Acting President Wickremesinghe said he was requesting help from the British government and its intelligence services because the investigation into the Easter attacks was incomplete. The families of the victims of the Easter attacks have been critical of the slow pace of the investigation. After this, the families allege that the matter is being suppressed under a political conspiracy. PLC/GT
