Jeyapuram residents ask to free 548 acre of their lands under the army control.

The residents of Jeyapuram had said that 548 acre of their paddy cultivating lands are still under the control of the Army, although the war had ended long ago. These lands are situated between Vannerikulam and Pantryveddikulam in close proximity to Thevan Kulam, in Kilinochchi district. The Army and Forest department officials are preventing us from going to our land saying there are land mines in these lands.

Relevant authorities should take action to release our lands they said.
