leave a comment »

A three-week amnesty period to surrender illegal weapons has been announced again by the security forces to armed groups operating in the Eastern Province, according to media reports. According to Edison Gunathilaka, DIG of Police in the East, this move is yet another attempt by security forces to reduce the overwhelmingly large amounts of illegal weapons held by armed forces operating in the area.

A similar amnesty announced in July this year has failed to do so and number of killings, attacks and abduction of people are still on the rise in the East.

Meanwhile, the dead body of a woman with cut injuries on her neck was found on Sunday morning at the Meerankerny-Savukkady Boundary Road, Maramunthirikaith Thottam in the Eravur Police division. The body is identified as that of 30 years old, mother of three children Seiyadu Mohamed Nafeela of Raakerny who had left to Polonnaruwa on Saturday according to a complaint made by her parents to the Police.
