There is an increase in the number of Sri Lankan refugees returning home from camps in Tamil Nadu, latest statistics with the United Nations (UN) have shown. This is being seen as the result of no violent incidents being reported since the end of the war.


 A group of 67 people who had escaped from north-eastern Sri Lanka as fighting escalated between Tamil separatists and government troops returned home with the help of the UN High Commissioner of Refugees (UNHCR).
 

“This group ... arrived two days ago. They had approached the UNHCR India for help. We received them at the airport and gave them a small travel grant,” an UNHCR official said.
 

According to Indian government statistics, till July 2010, there were 71,654 Lankan refugees in India living in 112 camps and 32,467 living outside. (Hindustan Times)

    From the comments it is evident why people are leaving Sri Lanka!! Why are they bothered about people going to Canada? Jealousy, I suppose!!

    More than the peaceful atmosphere that prevails here it is the harsh conditions in the Tamilnadu camps that have probably compelled them to return, I suppose.

    From Tamil Nadu to SL. From SL to Austrailia and Canada?.

    citizen1 Sunday, 24 October 2010 02:52 AM

    Are they genuine Sri Lankan Tamils or Indians masquerading as Sri Lankans?

    Hamlet Sunday, 24 October 2010 03:02 AM

    if they want Tamil as a national Language, as they demanded, they should remain in TamilNadu, their Homeland!

    Real-refugees are returning from India to Sri Lanka and fake-refugees are going to Canada Australia.

    knight Rider Monday, 25 October 2010 05:20 AM

    Are we sure that these are Sri lankans or are they Indians pretending to be sri lankans and wanting to take refuge in sri lanka ?
