2865 Internally displaced persons (IDPs) from Aayiththiyamalai area in Batticaloa district, were sent Tuesday and Wednesday in twenty buses to their own areas for resettlement, Batticaloa Government Agent (GA), Sundaram Arumainayagam said.
The IDPs had been languishing in transit welfare centres located in Aarayampathi, Ka'luvaagnchikukudi and Batticaloa for months.
The IDPs were given in temporary huts as their former dwellings are severely damaged.
