Police arrest resettled ex-LTTE cadres in Batticaloa

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 15 February 2011, 00:29 GMT]
Tamil youths who are reported to have left the LTTE and returned to normal life after marriage are being arrested by the Sri Lanka Police in the Batticaloa district. Such arrests are said to be on the increase in Paduvaangkarai region. Tamil residents are not coming forward to make complaints to higher authorities due to fear and reprisals, civil sources said.

The SL Police and its intelligence unit are said to be collecting information about Tamil youths who have left the LTTE and leading normal life in the district. This has caused fear among the Tamil population of the district.

This has come to light following the arrest of Selvaraja Kunasekaram, 37, who is a resident of Sangapuram, a Tamil village in Vakilaya area in the thirteenth colony in Mandoor police area in Vellaveli DS division.

Selvaraja was taken into custody on February 1 by Mandoor police. He left the LTTE four years ago and surrendered to the law enforcement authority.

On release after inquiry he left for work in Middle East. On his arrival from abroad he renewed his passport in Colombo. When he returned to his village two police officers, Sathiyasena and Mustapha, of Mandoor Police went to his residence and took him into custody on February 1.

He was later allowed in personal bail in a sum of five hundred thousand rupees by the local magistrate.
