Relatives of eleven suspected members of the "Aava" gang, who were arrested by the Terrorism Investigation Division (TID) in Jaffna, lodged a complaint with the Human Rights Commission (HRC) stating that the arrests were illegal.

The eleven youths were arrested in Jaffna on charges of being involved in anti-social activities and criminal activities connected to the ‘Aava’ group.

SLHRC Jaffna District Investigation Officer Thangavel Kanakaraj said the relatives claimed it was illegal to arrest the suspects under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) and take them to Colombo when they were charged with robbery.
