Lankan woman, kids arrested

2013 Oct 11

A Sri Lankan woman has reached Dhanushkodi with her two children by an illegal ferry. They have now been detained by police and sent to a refugee camp in Mandapam, the Press Trust of India reported.

Sindhilina Margret told the police that she was forced to flee Jaffna as her husband was in deep debt in Sri Lanka and the creditors were harassing her, police said.

The woman also said she had earlier been an inmate of the refugee camp in Tiruchirappalli and returned to Sri Lanka without informing officials.
