Twelve-hour police curfew imposed in Trincomalee

[TamilNet, Sunday, 16 April 2006, 16:22 GMT]
Twelve-hour curfew was clamped on three police divisions of the Trincomalee district, Trincomalee town, Uppuveli and Chinabay with effect from Sunday evening at 6 p.m. to Monday morning 6 a.m. Earlier two divisions, Trincomalee and Uppuveli were brought under curfew. The Chinabay police division has been brought under curfew following reports that some members of resettled Tamil families in Kappalthurai were assaulted by soldiers of the Sri Lanka Navy following a claymore mine attack on Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) personnel Saturday night.

Three SLAF personnel were killed in that attack that took place on Saturday. Two died on the spot and the third succumbed to injuries in the Trincomalee general hospital later.

Some of the resettled Tamil families in the village have now shifted to the school in the area for safety, sources said.

Mr.K.Thurairatnasingham, Trincomalee district parliamentarian has asked the Chinabay Police to provide protection to the people of Kappalthurai from being attacked by thugs, sources said.

Kappalthurai is a Tamil village. Entire village was deserted due to war. The displaced were resettled in the year 1995. The village is located behind the Chinabay airport, sources said.
