The CTID is accused of carrying out a manhunt against former LTTE members, Tamil public servants, journalists and youths from the north.

In one of the latest incidents, a man who has been living abroad since 2018 has been told to appear before the division.

Parents of 32-year-old Dharmalingam Radeepan from Omanthai, Vavuniya said police handed them a letter in Sinhala on 10 January, which they did not understand.

Last week too, police came to their house and inquired about their son.

A similar incident has taken place in Mannar, where the Army inquired from relatives about an ex-LTTE member, who has been living abroad for the past 16 years.

Sakayanathan Sandappu has not been rehabilitated after the war, correspondents report.

Meanwhile, ex-LTTE member Selvanayagam Annandavarnan of Vavuniya was asked on 09 March to be present at the CTID in Colombo three days later for an inquiry into his facebook account.

Citing inability to oblige, he has asked for another date.

Also, Mullaitivu’s media officer for the Government Information Department Thiruchelvam Divakar was ordered to report to the CTID on 15 March without citing a reason.

He failed to obtain an explanation for his summoning at the division’s office in Mullaitivu.

Subsequently, he gave a statement as asked and also informed the Human Rights Commission about it.
