The spokesman said that five of them have been released since there was no evidence against them.

He further said that 10 of the suspects were women. Eight of them have been detained in Boossa while two are detained in Vavuniya.

The places they are detained are gazetted detention centers.

Police rejected allegations that the women are ill-treated and the wife of Gopi, a suspect wanted by police has undergone an abortion while in custody.

The police media spokesman said that the detainees are provided food, medical facilities and visits of the relatives and ICRC is allowed as per the rights of the detainees.
