Ramanathapuram, Apr 2 (UNI) Three Sri Lankan nationals, including a woman, took refuge in the Special Refugee Camp for Sri Lankan Tamil Refugees at Mandapam here today.

Official sources told UNI that the refugees, Amirthanathan (48), Dixon Ferreira (25) and Ms Dhanalakshmi (50), hailing from Mannar and Jaffna regions in the island nation, had arrived in Tamil Nadu with valid documents recently.

The refugees registered their names with the authorities of the Special Refugee Camp this evening, and were housed at the camp, the sources said.

It may be recalled that there was heavy influx of Sri Lankan Tamil refugees to Tamil Nadu for the past couple of months owing to fierce fighting between the Sri Lankan armed forces and LTTE.
