A youth from Vadamaradchy surrendered at the Jaffna office of the Sri Lanka Human Rights office on Wednesday bringing the total number of civilians surrendered since Aug.11, to 42, rights officials said.

The youth who surrendered on Wednesday was seriously injured in a shooting incident in Rajakiramam Nelliady, Karaveddy two weeks ago and has been undergoing treatment at the Jaffna teaching hospital.

All 42 civilians are being kept in protective custody in Jaffna prison under the Jaffna Court's order.

Meanwhile, the officials of the Jaffna office of HRC have requested the head office in Colombo to arrange for the establishment a special detention camp for the surrendered civilians since they said it was not advisable to keep them together with convicted prisoners.

The official have also requested the head office to take steps to provide job opportunities for these youths some of whom are school students, and to provide plans for their future.
