SL Police detain 10 civilians in Batticaloa after slaying of TMVP operative

[TamilNet, Sunday, 21 September 2008, 19:05 GMT]
Sri Lankan forces and TMVP paramilitary men on Saturday detained 10 Tamil civilians in a cordon and search operation jointly conducted by them in Tha'lavaay area, after a TMVP operative was slain Friday night at the office of TMVP at Tha'lavaay.

40 Tamils were initially taken for inquiries and 30 of them were released while the rest were being detained at Ea'raavoor police. Those in police custody will be produced before Batticaloa courts, legal sources said.

The TMVP is aligned with Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa's ruling United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA) while the Sri Lankan forces operate its armed men as paramilitary personnel in the East.

Ea'raavoor is located 16 km north of Batticaloa city.
