Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers occupying Ki’linochchi are forcing the resettled civilians in Selvaanakar Eight Houses Scheme to vacate their houses claiming that their houses are built on private land, Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Vanni parliamentarian Sritharan said. He added that SLA soldiers entering the Scheme during nights in the last few days have been attacking the men, women and children in the housing scheme indiscriminately. The above families, whose heads are disabled, are so scared and frustrated that they consider suicide to escape SLA intimidation and harassment, Sritharan said.

Houses were given by Sri Lanka government to disabled persons in the above Scheme before the war, the affected civilians said.

SLA officials in Ki’linochchi are harassing the above civilians to vacate claiming that they are supporters of Liberation Tigers and their houses are constructed on private land, Sritharan said.

The resettled civilians who had been uprooted from their dwellings during war said that the houses were built on government land and given to them by Sri Lanka government.
