Armed robberies on the rise during curfew hours in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Friday, 19 January 2007, 04:43 GMT]
Jaffna Traders Association Thursday urged the Government Agent in Jaffna to take measures against the escalating late-night robberies, by white-van squad, during the curfew hours targeting the business establishments in the Peninsula. In a letter to the GA, the association has expressed concern as more than 40 million rupees worth of cash, jewels and clothes were robbed in many shops in Jaffna town, Nallur, Chundikkuli and Chunnaham within a week.

Many of the robberies have taken place close to the military camps in heavily guarded areas during curfew hours.

One textile shop in the heart of Jaffna town was robbed twice within a month where 4 million rupees worth of clothes were stolen.

The shop is situated near the Jaffna main bus terminal where there is a 24 hours military guard and the Sri Lanka Army 51-2 Brigade base is situated a few meters away from the shop.
