106 uprooted civilians from Vanni including 41 undergrads of Jaffna University and 7 disabled persons were released Wednesday and officially handed over to their families.

The group released is only a segment of the total number held in the SRC, informed sources said.

Jaffna University VC said that the 41 undergrads can recommence their education activities.

Jaffna Clock Tower Road, which connects Stanley Road and Jaffna town, lies in the centre of Jaffna town where Gnanam and Subas hotels are located.

The above hotels had been converted into the SLA 512 Division in 1996 when SLA occupied Jaffna peninsula.

The increasing traffic congestion in Jaffna town is also a reason for the Clock Tower Road opening for public, the sources said.
