TEPS expands service in Batticaloa

[TamilNet, Saturday, 02 August 2003, 17:55 GMT]
Twenty-four policemen from the Tamil Eelam Police Service (TEPS)’s headquarters in the Vanni have reached Batticaloa on Saturday with the guidance of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission, and the policemen are staying at the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam-controlled Vakarai area, 32 km to the north of Batticaloa town, TEPS sources said.

The TEPS personnel will help in expanding the police services in the Batticaloa district, and will train and guide new police recruits in the district, the sources said.

The Batticaloa district main police station of the TEPS is functioning at Palugamam. Though additional police stations were opened at Karadiyanaru and Vakarai, these stations have not started functioning. The newly arrived TEPS personnel will help these stations to function normally, the TEPS sources said.

According to the sources, a district headquarters of the TEPS will be opened in Kokkadicholai soon.

Following the ceasefire agreement between the LTTE and the Government of Sri Lanka, a group of TEPS personnel were allowed to use a sea route to reach Batticaloa from the Vanni in 2002 for the first time. Saturday’s second group of TEPS personnel used a land route.
