Sri Lanka Army (SLA) has reintroduced checking of all vehicles passing through the main road in Batticaloa to Vaazhaichcheanai, Kalmunai and Verukal areas. This checking of civilians causes untold hardships during emergency travelling, residents express concern. Despite these checking by police and SLA, paramilitary gangs continue to rob and involve in other crimes, they added.

Motor cyclists riding to Batticaloa from Vaazhaichcheanai complain that they are subjected to stringent check by the traffic police of Ea’raavoor Police causing hardships.

Public servants too complain that due to the frequent checking they face difficulties in reporting to work in time as they are stopped and checked in places other than the sentry points of the army and police.
