The people have expressed concern regarding the de-activation of bombs near residential areas in Kilinochchi district.
The Army is pursuing this act near residential lands in Kilinochchi, Umaiyalpuram, Thadduvankoddy and Elephant pass areas. The area people said this activity is now going on for two months and that they are living in fear.
People have expressed concern because the de-activation is being carried out just 250 meters from their houses. Parts and pieces of deactivated explosive devices are falling near their house and that they are afraid that they will hurt by them.
Hence they request that these kinds of activities should be shifted to some appropriate areas.
