Police instructs Tamils in Kotahena to register their presence

[TamilNet, Saturday, 14 August 2010, 04:38 GMT]
Sri Lanka Police Thursday early morning conducted a cordon and search operation in Kotahena in Colombo district for several houses from 4:30 a.m.. Police personnel engaged in the operation instructed Tamil residents to register their presence in the location with the police immediately. Some Tamil residents argued with the police personnel that there was no need for them to register their presence with the police as the clause to the effect had been withdrawn from the Emergency Regulations now in force.

But the police personnel had told these Tamil residents that the registration had been re-introduced to check LTTE cadres entering the Colombo city.

Heated argument ensued between the police and Tamil residents thereafter.

The Police immediately took some of the Tamil residents who vehemently protested against the police instruction, to the police station for further inquiry.
