Girl student sexually assaulted in Batticaloa near SLA, STF camps

[TamilNet, Monday, 24 June 2013, 01:36 GMT]
Tamil women from the East continue to be vulnerable to sexual assaults allegedly at the hands of Sinhala men even as another incident of sexual assault on a 17-year-old student was reported in Batticaloa district on Thursday last week.

A girl student from Veappaveddavaan village was rescued from a bush in a sexually abused state on Thursday.

The girl was sexually assaulted in Chengkaladi - Badulla A5 Highway that comes under Karadiyanaa’ru police limits within the division of Ea'raavoor-pattu (Chengkaladi) of the Batticaola district.

The girl is studying arts at GCE (A/L) level at Thannaamunai Va'lanaar School.

On June 20, she had reportedly left for the educational institution and was on her way to home when the abuse took place at Theakkangcheanai after the girl had got down from a bus.

It is reported the miscreants who committed the shameful act remain ‘unidentified’.

A Sri Lanka Special Task Force (STF) camp is situated at Iluppaiyadich-cheanai where the girl had got down from the bus. A Sri Lanka Army (SLA) camp is situated close to the site at Maavadi-oadai.

It may be recalled that a 45-year-old woman was abused last May by four Sinhalese men in the Batticaloa district.

In the meantime, SL military intelligence officers of the occupying Sri Lanka Army (SLA) in the north of Vaakarai are reportedly frequenting the houses of former LTTE members and combatants under the pretext of investigations and are attempting to sexually harass the wives while keeping their husbands in prolonged detention.
