[TamilNet, Monday, 26 July 2010, 06:02 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) has reintroduced checking of all vehicles
passing through the main road in Batticaloa to Vaazhaichcheanai,
Kalmunai and Verukal areas. This checking of civilians causes untold hardships
during emergency travelling, residents express concern. Despite these checking by police and SLA, paramilitary gangs continue to rob and involve in other crimes, they added.
Motor cyclists riding to Batticaloa from Vaazhaichcheanai complain
that they are subjected to stringent check by the traffic police of Ea’raavoor
Police causing hardships.
Public servants too complain that due to the
frequent checking they face difficulties in reporting to work in time as they are stopped and checked in places other than the sentry points of the army and police.
