6 reported missing in Chavakachcheri, SLA bans bikes in town

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 24 January 2007, 15:14 GMT]
Six Tamil youths who were in Chavakachcheri town Tuesday were reported missing after Sri Lanka Army troopers launched an extensive search and cordon operation in the town Tuesday, arresting and releasing more than one hundred youths, after a bomb attack that killed an SLA soldier and 2 civilians.

The father of one of the missing youths has lodged a complaint at the Jaffna office of the Sri Lanka Human Rights Commission (SLHRC).

Meanwhile, the Sri Lankan troopers on Wednesday imposed a new rule, banning the entry of bicycles and motor cycles in the Central Business Area of the town, and instructed the public to park their two-wheelers at a spot 400 meters from the town, which remained mostly deserted Wednesday.
