A Sri Lankan group has threatened tit-for-tat attacks on Indians from Tamil Nadu after two Buddhist monks were targeted in the Indian state.

Group leader Iththekande Saddhatissa Thera sounded the warning, saying the Tamil Nadu and the central Indian governments had failed to protect the Sri Lankan monks in the southern state. 

Unless the Indian High Commission in Colombo ensured the safety of Sri Lankans visiting Tamil Nadu, it will “have to think of a system to protect people who visit Sri Lanka from Tamil Nadu”, it said.
