[TamilNet, Friday, 03 June 2011, 08:56 GMT]
The Special Task Force, an elite commando wing of the Sri Lankan Police and a part of the SL armed forces in the war against Tamils, has begun registering the names and other details of Tamils from Batticaloa, who are settled abroad. A group of personnel of Special Task Force dressed in black uniform conducted house to house search operation in Ea'raavoorpattu Chengkaladi division in Batticaloa district Thursday from 4:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

The STF commandos search every house in the area from Ampalaththadi junction to Vishnu Koayil and collected the names of persons of both sexes who are residing abroad.

The registration also included the large number of Tamils who have recently sought employment abroad as maids and labourers due to acute unemployment in the district.

Meanwhile, house to house search and registration of details of people who have gone abroad were also carried out at 2nd unit of Maavadivempu and 1st unit of Chiththaa'ndi on May 29, civil sources in Batticaloa said.
