Filed under: global islands,india — admin @ 6:14 am

Sri Lankan Tamil refugees in Rameswaram told Thinakaran, a Tamil Nadu daily that corpses of Tamils youths float in sewages in the North-East of Sri Lanka.

A large number of Tamils flee from Sri Lanka to the southern coast of India due to escalation of violence in Sri Lanka.

17 refugees including five children from Thirukadalure in Trincomalee and Illupankaulam in Vavuniya reached Kothandar Ramar Kovil Beach in Rameswaram on November 11th.

Koneswaran, one of the refugees, told Thinalkaran that the Tamil youths arrested by the army disappear and later they are found dead in sewages and that they are fleeing from North-East to save their lives.

Another refugee by the name of Jagetheswaran stated that the army brands every Tamil youth as a tiger and attacks.

Pirinthiny, a woman refugee, stated that due to the closure of A9 there is a scarcity for food items leading to a price hike.
