Deploying hundreds of soldiers after detaining a 48-year-old mother and her 13-year-old daughter on Thursday, the Sri Lankan military has rounded up the village of Tharmapuram in Ki’linochchi, cutting off the contact between the village and the outside world, news sources in Ki’linochchi said. The SL military is attempting to create a scene of ‘LTTE regrouping’ through its intelligence operations to support its propaganda in Geneva, sources close to the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) in Ki’linochchi said.
The detained girl and her mother have been taken to an undisclosed location. They are not reachable through mobile phone, their relatives said Friday morning.
The General Secretary of Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Maavai Senathirajah, TNA MP E. Saravanapavan and a group of Northern Provincial Council members have gone to Ki’linochchi from Jaffna Friday morning trying to contact the affected family.
