Sri Lanka Navy had arrested eight persons attempting to get on board a boat with the intention of sailing to India and from there to Australia from the beach in Mannar, a place known as Urumalai.

The group consisted of two males, three females and three children belonging to two families. The suspects have been handed over to the Talaimannar police.

    It's high time the govt. realized the real truth and did something other than suck up to the Australians. The only way they could stop this phenomenon is to ensure a better life to ALL the citizens and not just to handful of corrupt Neanderthals. Take a cue from Viet Nam. It too had this 'boat people problem during the war-not anymore. Ask them how and why!
