Eight Lankan refugees joined the indefinite fast launched by Poonamallee Special Refugees Camp inmate Senthuran on Wednesday, a news agency reported.

Senthuran was shifted to the Poonamallee Special Camp from the Chengalpattu Camp on August 4 after he submitted a petition to the Camp Officials that he would like to go on a fast seeking the closure of the special camps.

Senthuranis suspected to be the force behind the strikes orgainsed by the refugees and was shifted to the Poonamallee camp, which many call a no-return camp.

“Refugees arekept in these camps for no reason and without charge-sheeting them,” a Refugee told Express. Senthuran began his fast ten days ago on August 6. Eight inmates of the Poonamallee camp decided to go on a token fast urging the officials to hold talks with Senthuran. However, the token fast turned into an indefinite fast as no official from the district administration or police department visited the protesters.

“We thought the officials would turn up if we observed a one-day token fast, but it was in vain. Therefore, we decided to go on an indefinite fast until the officials lend an ear to Senthuran,” said an inmate. (IBN Live)
