SLA arrests student in Valikaamam

[TamilNet, Thursday, 19 February 2009, 14:32 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers took away a 16-year-old school student from his house in Aavarangkaal in Valikaamam east in a search conducted in the area Wednesday claiming that they had found medicinal items including glucose from his house, sources in Jaffna said. The boy’s mother took kerosene oil in an attempt to kill herself while his father is said to have gone into hiding. This incident is related to the killings of two youths shot by SLA soldiers recently in Aavarangkaal, residents of Aavarangkaal said.

The mother who was admitted to Jaffna Teaching Hospital by her neighbours is now out of danger after being treated in the Intensive Care Unit.

SLA had conducted this sudden search on a tip from outside, SLA said.

Valikaam east, including Aavarangkaal, has been subjected to SLA cordon and search in recent times while security measures have been tightened along the coast with frequent checking of civilians in the area.
