Danger – Restaurant Bar Opened-up in an Accident- prone Corner in Vallai

Colombo, 16 August, (

At a dangerous road corner (AB 20 Road), Point Pedro – Nelliady – Jaffna Road, near Imayanan just before entering Vallai, ‘Yarl Beach Hotel & Bar’, has been opened up very recently – the location considered a most dangerous accident prone road corner.

Already a dozen of nasty accidents have been reported from the spot where the Bar has been recently opened up.

This is a new liquor bar and it seems to have been opened up after the dissolution of the Parliament and nobody knows how - either the Excise Department or the Tourist Board has issued the necessary license to this liquor bar located very very close to the J/ Imayanan Gocernment Tamil Mixed School, Upali Amman Hindu Temple and the Hindu Cemetery.

Several residents living around the newly opened bar told Asian Tribune that the new bar poses a great threat and danger to their serene way of life they so far experienced.

Mr. A. Selvam a social worker and a journalist said this Bar challenges the calm and quiet way of life people so far lead in the rural area, where it has been opened up.

He said authorities should immediately close down the bar and withdraws the license. He said that immediately after the general elections people are planning to have an agitation to urge the authorities to close down the bar.

Asian Tribune visited the area and found the location of the bar dangerous and accident prone.
