Security beefed up in Moneragala

[TamilNet, Thursday, 07 February 2008, 01:12 GMT]
Local officials have intensified security measures in the plantation sector in Moneragala, Buttala and Wokkapitiya following recent bomb blasts in these areas, residents said. Tension and fear still prevails in Moneragala district, civil society sources said.

Stringent security measures were implemented after key officials in the province including A.N.Muthulingam, Vice president of Moneragala district Pradeshiya Sabha, Vijitha Muni Soyza, Chief Minister (CM) of Uva Province and the Superintendent of Police (SP) in charge of the security of the district were notified of the feeling of insecurity prevailing in the region, sources said.

Check points have been established in plantations in Kumaarawatte, Sinnapaalaaru, Periyapaalaaru and Sirukalaikkulukkal and security around the clock is being strictly enforced.

All suspicious vehicles are being thoroughly checked before being permitted to proceed. However, the Tamils residing in the area are forced to spend the nights with fear and terror.

All the estates in the region are subjected to frequent cordon and search operations in the night resulting in young men and women in the estates forced to avoid leaving the estates.
