Security up at Pooluvapatti Sri Lankan refugee camp in Coimbatore

Police have strengthened security at Pooluvapatti Sri Lankan refugee camp here following a clash between members of the camp and a Hindu outfit on Saturday.

Coimbatore District (Rural) police have arrested four persons in connection with the incident.

According to the police, a volleyball match held at the camp led to the fight between Hindu Munnani functionaries and camp inmates. One Siva, 52, intervened in the dispute between Vijay and Antony. “A few persons from the camp allegedly pushed Siva. Siva informed his son Susheendran of the incident. He took up the matter with the Hindu Munnani men. A group of over 100 men entered the camp at 11.30 p.m. leading to a clash,” the police said.
