Armed robberies escalate in Vanni

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 03 May 2011, 16:35 GMT]
Several robberies carried out by armed men in military uniform have taken place in recent times in Ki'linochchi and Mullaiththeevu districts in Vanni, where resettlement of civilians is partially allowed. Armed men in military uniform who came to Kallaa'ru Periyaku'lam village, claiming that they were on a search operation, instructed the families of two houses to stay outside while they searched their houses around 01:00 a.m. The men removed all the valuable belongings inside the houses and walked away, residents who had recently resettled complained.

The houses are situated on Paranthan Mullaiththeevu Road, five km away from Visuvamadu.

The residents in the area said they had seen the uniformed men in the military camp situated in the area. When they complained to the military camp, the officers of the occupying Sri Lankan military denied knowledge of any robbery in the area.

Periyaku'lam is situated in the Ki'linochchi district.
