[TamilNet, Sunday, 06 July 2008, 15:52 GMT]
A batch of three hundred and eighty one members of 114 families displaced from Moothoor East in 2006 to Batticaloa district were brought down Saturday by fourteen buses escorted by the Sri Lankan police via Vaakarai and resettled in their villages, Iththiku'lam, Thangkanakar and Sreenivaasapuram in Pa'l'likkudiyiruppu GS area in the Moothoor DS division in Trincomalee district.

They had been staying in seven welfare centres located in Aaraiyampathi and Batticaloa in Batticaloa district since they fled from Moothoor following military operation launched by the Sri Lanka Army.

District Secretariat sources said these IDPs would be provided with free ration and other food items by the Moothoor DS office.
