Navy saves 76 Tamil civilians while fleeing LTTE in Mulaittivu

Sri Lanka Navy's Patrol Craft escorted 76 Tamil civilians, who were found helpful in the Mullaithivu seas while fleeing from the LTTE terror, into safety at Pulmudai on the 25th of January 2009 around 09.50 a.m. The rescued escapees comprised of 30 male adults, 26 female adults and 20 children.
The group had been harassed in the deadly seas in order to save their lives on board four fiber glass dinghies (FGDs) when the Naval patrol craft came to their rescue. Having been securely brought ashore, naval personnel attended to the basic needs of the escapees by providing them with much-needed food and refreshments. Those found to be exhausted and sick due to the sour and unsafe ordeal during their escapade were provided with immediate medical care.
Having found safe haven and at ease of their pain of mind and body from the worried naval care comprehensive, the escapees, in unison, revealed how cruelly the LTTE is holding the blameless civilians locked up against their will. The unsuccessful civilians, they claim, are being used as human shields and by force conscripted as the terror outfit's carder power is drastically moribund day by day in the face of the tempting military victories of the Government Security Forces who are about to free the entire area from the tentacles of the LTTE's tyranny.
Sri Lanka Navy has made special arrangements to take delivery of hapless Tamil civilians fleeing from the LTTE clutches. Naval personnel and vessels along with stand-by put sideways and medical teams are on demanding use for this caring help assignment in the North-eastern seas.
