Six Sri lankan refugees were arrested at the fourth sand dune off Danushkodi coast in Tamil Nadu (TN) today when they were going back to the island nation, for leaving their camps in the district without informing the authorities.

Police said the refugees had left the camps at Karur, Erode, Tiruchirapalli and Bhavani sagar camps on March 31 and engaged a boat at Rameswaram to go back to Sri Lanka.

However ferry operators dropped them off at the fourth sand dune, misleading them by saying it was Talaimannar and they could go to Jaffna from there, police said.

The refugees told the officials that they had remained stranded at the sand dune since March 31. (PTI)

    Now these former refugees escaped the fighting are returning back to Sri Lanka, there is no justification for the opportunistic queue jumpers who try to sneak in to Australia by sea.

    Why do they sneak? Do they like to live in India and Sri Lanka and enjoy the welfare benefits of displaced persons?

    These refugees belong to Sri Lanka. If they consider that conditions back at home are conducive for them to return, why don't the authorities assist them to realise their wish?
