The occupying Sri Lankan military that was spying on SMS messages exchanged among the young generation of Eezham Tamils in Batticaloa district on Thursday instructed the SL police to arrest and detain two Tamil youths at Vaazhaich-cheanai police division of Batticaloa district, news sources in Batticaloa said. The SL military had intensified deployment of military intelligence operatives in all places, from places of worship to private tuition centres in the Batticaloa district.

Sri Lankan soldiers were on bicycle patrol on all the streets of Batticaloa amidst pouring rain. They were chasing Tamil youth who were on the roads on Thursday.

Sinhala soldiers were deployed in all junctions in the Tamil areas of Ampaa'rai dsitrict.

On Tuesday, a group of Sri Lankan military intelligence personnel chased away the devotees who had gathered for a pooja at the Pi'l'laiyaar temple at Munnam-poadi-veddai in Moothoor West in Trincomalee district.

The Sinhala military personnel were alleging that the Tamil devotees had gathered to pay tribute to Tamil Heroes and the soldiers smashed the pot in which the Saiva devotees were preparing ritual milk rice (Pongkal), news sources in Trincomalee said.
