Three inmates of one family detained in the Cheddiku'lam internment camp in Vavuniyaa were seriously injured when a huge branch of a tree fell on their hut Tuesday evening following heavy shower. Tension prevails in the camps as the inmates fear flooding during the imminent monsoon season.

The victims were immediately admitted to the Vavuniyaa general hospital. Later two of them, 34-year-old Annalingam Nanthakumar and his wife’s sister 18-year-old Sinnarasa Priya were transferred to the Anuradhapura Teaching Hospital as their condition were reported critical, according to medical sources.

56-year-old Sinnarasa Mani, mother of Priya, and his son in-law Nanthakumar are warded in the Vavuniyaa general hospital with broken legs.
