Ten Tamil girls who are residents of Mannar district working in a garment factory located in Negombo in the Western Province were arrested by Peliyagoda Police Wednesday. They had been residing in a house when they were taken into custody by the police on suspicion.

The father of a girl now in custody of the Peliyagoda police Saturday lodged a complaint with the Regional Office of the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL) regarding the arrest of ten Mannar girls.

HRCSL officials in Mannar immediately contacted the Peliyagoda police and inquired about the arrest. Peliyagoda Police told Mannar HRCSL officials that these girls were taken into custody on suspicion and inquiry was being held.

Meanwhile the Peliyagoda Police has asked the Mannar Police to furnish a report of these girls.
