They were transported using thirteen buses from the welfare centers in Batticaloa district on Wednesday via Vaakarai-Verukal road, according to Rehabilitation Project Director A.L.M.Sheriff in Batticaloa.

Several thousands of Moothoor displaced have been still staying in Batticaloa welfare centers awaiting resettlement in their own villages.
