21 Tamil youths detained by Eravur police

[TamilNet, Thursday, 27 April 2006, 17:58 GMT]
More than 70 Tamils were taken to investigations by Eravur police Thursday morning around 9 a.m. in a roundup search at the Eravur Muslim Public market. 21 Tamil youths have been detained for further inquiries, said the Chief of Eravur Police Crimes Branch.

The youths detained are from Valaichenai, Sithandy, Murkodanchenai, Vantharumoolai, Chenkalady, Vavunativu, Puttalam and Trincomalee.

In the roundup which lasted for nearly three hours, males in and around the Eravur market were brought to Eravur police station compound and inquired.

Meanwhile, pandemonium reigned inside the Batticaloa public market by rumours of a bomb in the market.

The cause of the rumour had been a piece of wire protruding from a box in a plantain shop which was found to be harmless by the police and army units who arrived at the scene.
