Meanwhile, three family men between the ages of 27 and 49 from Cha’ndilippaai, Yaththaalai in Va’ra’ni and Madduvil in Chaavakachcheari sought protection to their lives with Jaffna HRC Tuesday.

A family man from Vadamaraadchi surrendered to HRC Jaffna Monday due to continuing death threats from SLA and SLA-backed paramilitary men.

142 men of varied ages who sought HRC protection are placed in the protective custody of Jaffna Prison.

13 persons including women and children are given protection in Canaan Church institution in Irupaalai.

A total of 155 civilians have been given protection by HRC Jaffna.
