Lankans housed in a camp in Tiruchi observe fast

Eleven Sri Lankan Tamils housed in a Special Camp in Tiruchi, India resorted to a relay fast yesterday (Friday) demanding their release, The Hindu newspaper reported.

The Lankan Tamils resorted to this step in the morning. They have been lodged in the camp since a case had been booked against them by the Q Branch CID police in Nagercoil for allegedly trying to illegally ferry Sri Lankan Tamils to Australia, police sources said.

Some of them had attempted to escape on the ferry.
