Sri Lanka Army (SLA) has established several new sentries in Mannar town and its suburbs, and has blocked the road leading to the office of the Superintendent of Police from use by the public as a part of strengthening the security of the district, sources said.

New sentries in front of the primary court building on Mannar-Talaimannar road and in front of Telecom office and St.Sebastian Church in Thalvupadu were established Friday afternoon.

Barriers have been established at the two ends of the road that leads to the office of the Mannar Police Superintendent, sources said.

Meanwhile, the acting Mannar Magistrate Mr.Johnthasan Friday ordered remand for two suspects A.Selvanesan and D.Theiventhiran till December 19 for allegedly extorting money from traders in Mannar. They were arrested and produced in the Mannar court Friday by the Police.

The Police requested the court to remand them for two weeks but the court ordered them remand for three days. The suspects were immediately transferred to Anuradhapura remand prison via Vavuniya, sources said.
