Ramanathapuram, Tamil Nadu, Mar 25 (UNI) Three Sri Lankan nationals arrived at the special refugee camp in Mandapam here today.

Official sources said Navaraja (27), Ayngaran (28) and Dayalan (39), hailing from Trincomalee and Yalpanam regions in the island nation, reached Chennai on March 14 by a chartered flight of Sri Lankan Airlines with valid documents.

After preliminary investigations by the state intelligence sleuths and revenue officials, they were housed at the camp, the sources added.

There has been a heavy influx of Sri Lankan Tamil refugees for the past couple of months due to intense fighting between the Sri Lankan armed forces and the LTTE.
