The 224 brigade of Sri Lanka Army provided facilities to the villagers to revisit their homes in the High Security Zone and 138 families of the Navarathnapuram village visited their old houses which were in dilapidated conditions.

Sampur, located in close vicinity to the Trincomalee harbor was under the control of the Tamil Tiger terrorists Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) until the Army recaptured the area in September 2006.
