Meanwhile 1200 passengers have booked for the ship transport to Jaffna at the Divisional Secretariat.

Seven hundred, including 300 from the Vanni region, are expected to be sent on the first sailing.

Sources said Jaffna University final year students and those who had come from abroad to visit their families in Jaffna have been given priority.

Meanwhile, the DS said the Lanka Muditha has sailed to Colombo from Trincomalee to collect cargo that is to be transported to Jaffna.
