SLA soldiers harass resettled women during nights in Vanni

[TamilNet, Saturday, 05 June 2010, 20:29 GMT]
A Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldier who broke into a house in Thirunakar in Ki’linochchi Friday midnight and attempted to sexually harass a woman was chased away by neighbours, according to complaints made by the resettled families to Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian, N. Siritharan. The soldier who tried to escape the chasing men accidentally fell into a well on the way and had to remain in the well until rescued by fellow soldiers who came that way in a tractor as the men who chased him did not pull him out.

Lack of electricity and houses of the resettled families being far apart are favourable conditions for the SLA soldiers who try to sexually harass and abuse the women of the resettled families in Ki’linochchi area, Sritharan said.

Srithataran who was a principal in Ki’linochchi before being elected as MP said that many cases of harassment by SLA soldiers have been brought to his notice by the resettled families.
