The decision to cancel the leave of police personnel serving in several areas in the Northern Province including Kopai, Chunnakam and Manipay had been extended by the Jaffna
Senior DIG.  

Police said this has been done considering the prevailing security situation that had arisen because of the increased presence of the ‘Awa’ and ‘Dhanurok’ groups there.  

They said special police operations were underway to arrest members of the two groups and that the leave cancellation would be effective until the situation is brought under control.  

Leave of police personnel serving in the Northern Province and the Jaffna District had earlier been cancelled for two weeks.
