Children were thrown into vehicles and the occupying Sinhala Army assaulted uprooted Tamil families using gun butts and batons Monday evening at Thiru-mu’rika’ndi Hindu Tamil Viththiyaalayam in Ki’linochchi. A section of the uprooted families who had been brought from Menik Farm by the SL military a few weeks ago had declined to accept what they called an ‘enslavement’ offer of ‘resettlement’ by the SL military.
The occupying Sri Lanka Army’s 59-1 Brigade, which has taken over one third of the five acre land that belongs to Mullaiththeevu District Secretariat during the war, is refusing to relocate their base from the land situated in the town. Civil officials of the District Secretariat, which has been functioning without proper building, discovered that the land allocated for the new building of the DS has been encroached by the said brigade of the 51 infantry division of the SLA and that they are unable to put up new buildings to satisfy the civil need.
