At least two Tamil women have been arrested by Sri Lankan police for alleged curfew violations, as they went to go deliver food to a group of women who were attacked by police officers earlier today.
Sri Lankan police officers forced entry into a house in Jaffna earlier today and viciously attacked family members with their guns and bats, leaving three Tamil women hospitalised. The officers also threatened to arrest people on false drug possession charges.
At least one woman was left unconscious by the assault, with three Tamil women in total requiring hospitalisation.
As two other women went to go drop off food at the Base Hospital in Manthikai, Sri Lankan police officers arrested both of them. They claimed the women were violating a military-enforced curfew.
