In a landmark event, nearly 100 Tamil girls will join the Sri Lanka Army on Saturday at a ceremony which is to be held at Bharathipuram in Kilinochchi.

They will be enlisted in the Army’s Volunteer Force and assigned to serve in the 6th Battalion of the Women's Corps.

After a course of military training they will be posted to the Kilinochchi and Mullaitivu districts in the hope they will facilitate the ongoing military-civil cooperation activities in these areas.

At Saturday’s ceremony according to Hindu customs and traditions, the parents will formally handover their children to the Army.

The girls were recruited to the Army after an interview conducted in the North and East. (Supun Dias)
