Recently two groups of young Tamil women from some detention centres in Vavuniyaa had been arrested on two separate occasions and taken to Boosa prison, sources in Vavuniyaa said.

The 100 arrestees include 35 youths from Ki'linochchi, 26 from Jaffna, 13 from Mullaiththeevu, 15 from Vavuniyaa, 7 from Mannaar, 1 from Trincomalee and 3 from Batticaloa.
