[TamilNet, Tuesday, 02 March 2010, 14:55 GMT]
Sri Lankan Terrorist Investigation Department (TID) arrested Friday 100 Tamil youths detained in Ne'lukku'lam Technical College detention camp in Vavuniyaa for further interrogation and later took them to Boosa prison in the south, according to information given to Human Rights Commission (HRC) Colombo. Recently two groups of young Tamil women from some detention centres in Vavuniyaa had been arrested on two separate occasions and taken to Boosa prison, sources in Vavuniyaa said.

The 100 arrestees include 35 youths from Ki'linochchi, 26 from Jaffna, 13 from Mullaiththeevu, 15 from Vavuniyaa, 7 from Mannaar, 1 from Trincomalee and 3 from Batticaloa.

Boosa prison authorities had informed Colombo HRC that the above youths are in their custody.

Young men and women thus arrested and taken to Boosa prison has created fear and anxiety among Tamil circles.
