Residents of the resettled Tamil village in Omadiyamadu in the Koralipattu North Regional Division have sought safety in Maruthankerny, Maruthankulam, Kirimichchai, Pannichankerny villages in the LTTE controlled region.

Meanwhile, people of Punanai, Mayilanthanai, which are also Tamil villages on the border of Batticaloa district, are living in a state of fear, said sources in Batticaloa.
