Colombo arrested to be sent to Boosa camp

[TamilNet, Monday, 05 February 2007, 10:26 GMT]
The Colombo Magistrate Monday allowed an application by the police to send Tamil civilians arrested in cordon and search operations conducted in Fort and Pettah areas in Colombo on Saturday and Sunday to Boosa detention camp located in the southern province, sources said.

Government security forces in two-day cordon and search operations arrested more than six hundred Tamil civilians including about one hundred women, majority of them natives of North East.

They were taken into custody allegedly for failing to prove their identity and reasons for their stay in Colombo. Majority of them were staying in lodges at that time of arrest, police said.

Most of the arrested have been detained in about nine police stations in Colombo police division. They were produced in court Monday and police moved that they be sent to Boosa detention camp until the inquiry is completed. Police told court that some of the suspects had been involved in terrorist activities according to preliminary investigation conducted so far, sources said.

Police said these suspects would be released only after intensive investigation.
