About 1150 persons of 290 displaced Tamil families were brought from Batticaloa district via Vaakarai by buses with police escort Thursday for resettlement in their villages in Eachchilampaththu division in Trincomalee. They are being sheltered in welfare centres before being sent to their own villages, divisional secretariat sources said.

The IDPs are from villages in Pooamarathadichchenai, Poonagar and Eachchilampathu and sought refuge in Batticaloa district following the military operation launched by the Sri Lanka Army, sources said.

Eachchilampaththu divisional secretariat sources that this was the last group of IDPs staying in temporary structures in Batticaloa district.

Already about 2400 families displaced and staying in Batticaloa district were resettled in Eachchilampaththu in earlier phases.
