SLA troop presence at school entrances irks parents

[TamilNet, Sunday, 29 January 2006, 13:20 GMT]
Increasing presence of Sri Lanka Army (SLA) troops near the entrances to several schools in Jaffna district has irked parents and have increased absenteeism in schools, civil society sources in Jaffna say. Educational institutions along the Jaffna-Kankesanthurai Road, from Jaffna town to Tellipallai entrance to the High Security Zone (HSZ) are the most affected, sources added.

Children attending Mallakam Maha Vidyalayam, Mallakam Visaladchi Maha Vidyalayam, Chunnakam Thirugnanasampantha Vidyalyam, Innuvil Central College, Kokkuvil Tamil Mixed School, Kokuvil Hindu College and Jaffna Hindu College located along the Jaffna-KKS road or nearby cross roads are affected by fear for their security.

Meanwhile, incidents of thefts have increased in Chankanai, Kalviyankadu, Tellipalai and surrounding areas, residents said.

Residents allege that despite complaints to the police, police have made no efforts to identify the intruders, nor the SLA command has taken efforts to alleviate the army-imposed lighting restrictions that have affected the security of Jaffna households during the night hours.
