The Tamil National People's Front (TNPF) marked the 4th anniversary of the Mullivaikkal massacre in Mannar on Saturday. Plans to hold it by the remembrance memorial in Samanakulam, Vavuniya were ended when the memorial monument was destroyed the night before.

Following the event, S. Kajendran and V. Manivannan of the Tamil National People's Front (TNPF), were arrested along with other party members.

According to party president, Gajendrakumar Ponnambalam, the TNPF members were questioned by the Terrorism Investigation Department (TID) for many hours, before eventually being released on personal bail.
