Hundreds of Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers Friday conducted house-to-house search in Thumpalai east and Moorkam villages in the Vadamarachchi division in
Jaffna district, civil group sources said.
SLA now frequently conducts cordon and search operation in most parts of the peninsula to maintain law and order, military sources said.
The SLA has increased its surveillance activities in the Jaffna district recently as the Jaffna Undergrads Union is making elaborate arrangements to hold Pongu Thamil celebration on grand scale in Jaffna university premises on June 27, police said.
