A TPP had gone on a fasting protest demanding to release him from prison for 3rd day yesterday. Rapallavan Thaboruban (Aged 36) of Chunnakam was arrested and detained by the TID in 2009. Following falling sick he was transferred to Jaffna prison in 2012 for treatment and medical tests at the Jaffna Teaching Hospital. He was falsely charged that he tried to escape from the Prison and was transferred to Anuradhapura prison in 2013.
From that day he has been detained in solitary prison. He had been subjected to much inquietude and had fallen sick. He had appealed to the Commissioner General of Prison HR Comission that he had not attempted escape from prison and detain hith with other Prisoners. Failing to get any answer, he had gone into fasting protest from day before yesterday.
