A Sri Lankan minister on Tuesday criticised the External Affairs Minister SM Krishna’s suggestion for investigation into alleged human rights abuses in the island during the final battle with the LTTE.

"The Indian foreign minister has said that human rights abuses in Sri Lanka need investigation. I would like to tell him that investigation must start with the time of Indian troops in Sri Lanka," Wimal Weerawansa, the leader of the National Freedom Front and the Minister of Engineering services in the government of Mahinda Rajapaksa said.

"Abuses happened during the very start of the conflict under President Jayawardene. All heads of state after him fought the war. But only President Mahinda Rajapaksa was able to finish it."
