The Sri Lankan Ministry of Defence has advised Sri Lankans to avoid Tamil Nadu as a result of the protest against Sri Lanka’s war crimes in the south Indian state these days.

Military spokesman Brigadier Ruwan Wanigasooriya said that even Sri Lankans on transit should try avoid Tamil Nadu.

He said that if any Sri Lankan is compelled to travel to Tamil Nadu then they should keep the Sri Lankan Deputy High Commission in Chennai informed.

Tamil students across Tamil Nadu have intensified their protests, demanding  that India move a resolution against Sri Lanka at the UN’s human rights body meet to press Colombo to acknowledge commission of genocide against its Tamil population.
