Occupying soldiers harass Tamil women in coastal village of Batticaloa

[TamilNet, Sunday, 11 February 2018, 22:35 GMT]
The Sinhala soldiers of the occupying military of genocidal Sri Lanka are harassing Tamil women in the coastal village of Thaazhang-kudaa, which is situated 14 km south of Batticaloa city, the residents complain. The SL military is further expanding its presence by extending its military base at Thaazhang-kudaa with additional 6 acres of public lands. In the meantime, the SL military intelligence is setting up several small huts within the expanded area of the camp, the residents further said.

The villagers also complain that their properties, particularly roof sealing, are being removed by the soldiers who roam around the village during the nights.

Last year, there have been complaints of SL soldiers stealing away dry stems of cashew trees that belong to Tamil farmers in the area.

The residents said they are more concerned of the increased sexual harassment by the soldiers than the menace of theft.

Thaazhang-kudaa comes under Ma'nmunaip-pattu administrative division.
