A group of people attending a celebration event in Jaffna has been arrested for allegedly violating quarantine laws. Among the arresttees was All Ceylon Tamil Congress MP Selvarasa Gajendran.

A function has been organised in Jaffna to commemorate Thileepan, a LTTE leader and the Police who arrived in the scene had informed the group that they could not allow the celebration to take place.

This has reportedly led to a heated exchange between the MP and the Police, and the MP, along with two other people, has been arrested thereafter.
