Although government authorities claim that all the Vanni Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) held in Sahanagam camp 2 located in Pulmoaddai in Trincomalee district, 2,576 of them are continued to be detained, sources in Trincomalee said.
These IDPs were brought by sea from Mullaiththeevu to Pulmoaddai while the military operation of the Sri Lanka Army against the LTTE reached its peak in the final stage.
706 students among the detained IDPs are taught by two
teachers and some volunteer teachers.
The IDPs have been requesting education authorities to post more teachers to teach IDP students in the camp, sources said.
