Army tightens security in Mutur

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 01 January 2002, 09:26 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army and Police have tightened security at sentry points at Kaddaiparichchan and Mahindapura and civilians were thoroughly searched before they were being allowed to enter government held region in the Trincomalee district, said sources.

A large number of Tamil civilians, including women and children from LTTE held villages in Mutur east, were seen waiting at the sentry points Monday to enter Seruvila town to buy provisions, the sources said.

Army sources in Trincomalee said security has been stepped up following instruction by the Defence Ministry not to allow any LTTE members into government held areas.

Meanwhile, the OIC of the Thalvupadu Police in Mannar division has been transferred out of the area Monday following a complaint against him for assaulting Tamil civilians who attended a religious function Sunday evening.

A group of leading citizens of Mannar Monday met the Senior Superintendent of Police and made a complaint against the said police officer, sources said.
