Three school boys arrested in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Friday, 12 October 2001, 09:13 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Police arrested three schoolboys in Jaffna Thursday. The three are students at the Sri Parvathi Maha Vithiyalayam in Nayanmaarkattu near Jaffna town. Their parents informed the Human Rights Commission about the arrests today. Meanwhile, the Special Investigation Unit of the Police Thursday produced in the Mannar courts a youth who had been taken into custody for possessing a mobile phone. The Sri Lankan government prohibits the use of mobile phones in the northern and eastern parts of the island. Tamil civilians from other parts of the island are, however, allowed to carry their mobile phones when visiting the army controlled parts of the east or the Vavuniya town.

The youth, Velayutham Vijayakumar, 25, was arrested while travelling in a bus from Vavuniya to Mannar town on Wednesday at Murunkan. The acting district judge for Mannar, Mr. M. M Saffrudeen, remanded Vijayakumar till 18 October.

The students of Sri Parvathi Maha Vithiyalayam who were arrested Thursday are:

1.Selvaratnam Kamalaraj, 18 of Navalar Road, Nallur, Jaffna

2.Sivagnanam Sivakumar, 16, of Ariyalai, Jaffna

3.Nadarajah Akilakumar, Columbuthurai, Jaffna
