130 Tamils from government held Muttur villages return

[TamilNet, Friday, 16 March 2007, 11:44 GMT]
A batch of about 130 persons from 40 Tamil families displaced from their villages in government controlled territory in Muttur and Serunuwara divisions returned from Batticaloa to Killiveddy in Muttur police division Thursday around 11 in night in two buses for resettlement. Another batch of 147 persons from 47 Tamil families are waiting in Batticaloa to return to their villages, divisional secretariat sources said.

These families fled to Vaharai first and then to Batticaloa following the outbreak of fresh fighting between government troops and LTTE in August last year, from government held territory in the Muttur and Serunuwara divisions.

Earlier about 751 persons returned to Killiveddy from Batticaloa by buses.

However, no action is being taken to resettle displaced Tamil families from LTTE held Tamil villages in Muttur east and Eachchilampathu divisions in Trincomalee district. They are still being given temporary shelter in Batticaloa.

Only displaced Tamil families from government held area are being transported to Muttur and being resettled, sources said.
