Thirteen of the 100 Tamil girls forcibly recruited by the Army, suffering from severe mental stress, were admitted to Kilinochchi Hospital around 11.00 pm on December 11, reports said. TNA MP Sridharan had tried to visit them at hospital, but had been denied permission by the military. Thereafter, he had called the hospital director over the phone to inquire about their health, but the latter had told him that he had been ordered by the military not to say anything about their condition. However, parents are permitted to visit them at the hospital, where a special area has been allotted for them. At the time of the recruitment, the girls had been told they would be required to do office work only. Ten girls had fled the Army during training while eight others have been suffering from mental stress for about a week.]]>
