Recently 49 women from the same camps in Vavuniyaa were arrested by TID and taken to Boosa prison for additional interrogation, sources in Vavuniyaa said.

Twelve women from Jaffna, 16 from Ki’linochchi, 9 from Mullaiththeevu, 7 from Mannaar, 5 from Trincomalee, 2 from Vavuniyaa and 3 from Ampaa’rai were taken to Boosa prison on 19 February.

The arrested women are not allowed to meet their family members.

The arrests of young women have caused fear and anxiety among the detainees.
