A group of personnel of Special Task Force dressed in black uniform conducted house to house search operation in Ea'raavoorpattu Chengkaladi division in Batticaloa district Thursday from 4:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
The STF commandos search every house in the area from Ampalaththadi junction to Vishnu Koayil and collected the names of persons of both sexes who are residing abroad.
The registration also included the large number of Tamils who have recently sought employment abroad as maids and labourers due to acute unemployment in the district.
