[TamilNet, Friday, 28 May 2010, 09:03 GMT]
Special Task Force (STF) commandos on road patrol arrested a Tamil youth in Ka'luvaangchchikkudi and another in Kalmunai Wednesday evening claiming that the youths had mobile phones containing recent Channel-4 photos and other such film clips from some other websites, the relatives of the arrestees said. STF had told Kalmunai police where the two youths are detained that the youths are working in support of the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE), sources in Kalmunai said.

The arrested youths are Muthurasa Karunakaran of Maariyamman Koayil Veethi in Paa'ndiruppu and Kumarasamy Nadarasa of Eruvil.

STF commandos arrested the youths when they checked their identity cards as they stood talking to their friends along the road.

Meanwhile, STF harassment during road patrol has increased in the districts of Batticaloa and Ampaa'rai, residents in the districts said.
