Latest intelligence reports say that female bombers of banned local terror outfit National Thowheed Jamath in disguise of devotees may have been planning to attack Sri Lanka’s Buddhist temples. This was said as the authorities seized white clothes from a house that was raided following Easter Sunday blasts.
According to the intelligence reports, on March 29, Muslim women had spent 29,000 Sri Lankan rupees (USD 166) to purchase nine sets of such white clothes from a textile shop in Giriulla and this was viewed in CCTV footage by the intelligence officers.
So far, five sets of white clothes have been found from this house and intelligence services are trying to find the remaining clothes. Such a suspicion arises more as there was one woman among the nine bombers who carried out the deadly Easter day terror attacks, which took the lives of 253 people and injured more than 500 people. Security have been tightened and rides are happening throughout Sri Lanka since the Easter day blasts. Sri Lanka government had also banned face coverings quoting national security following the Easter day blasts.
