The court decision regarding the funeral of Colombo Medhalankarakithi Thera, the chief incumbent of the Nayaru - Gurukanda Rajamaha Viharaya in Mullaitivu, is to be delivered today.

Mullaitivu Magistrate N. Sudhaharan yesterday ordered that the cremation of the remains should not be carried out in the temple premises without a court order.

This was based on a complaint lodged with the Mullaitivu Police, by the governing council of the Mullaitivu-Nayaru-Niraviya-Pullaiyar Kovil  and the residents of the area against bringing the remains of the body of the Chief Incumbent to the temple. The Magistrate also ordered that the council of the temple and the monks living in the temple to be present in court today.

The Thero, who was receiving treatment due to an illness, passed away last Friday and his remains are kept in the temple according to his request.

The funeral of Ven. Colombo Medhalankarakithi Thera, the chief incumbent of the Gurukanda Rajamaha Viharaya, was planned to be conducted today and Ven Ballalle Rathnasara Thero said that they are helpless because of the court order.
