At least twenty two Tamil civilians who returned to inspect their homes which they had fled ahead of a Sri Lankan army offensive disappeared in areas just outside positions held by the army. Their homes were in Santhapuram, Vasanthapuram, Murikandy and Selvapuram. They are believed to have been arrested and disappeared by Sri Lankan troops, as they have never been seen since. Their relatives lodged appeals with the ICRC in Mallavi.
