The veteran doctors T. Saththiyamoorthy and S. Varadarajah, who were working at hospitals inside the so-called no-fire zone, who publicised daily the casualties caused by heavy shelling there, have been arrested when they entered Sri Lanka Army controlled territory and their whereabouts are unknown. Both Dr. Sathyamoorthy and Dr. Varadarajan have been recommended by the UN for special honours for their part in carrying out their professional duties under difficult and trying conditions in the war front so far. Earlier, the government defence spokesperson and minister Kehiliya Rambukwella told journalists in the Colombo that the two doctors were not attached to the Government service.
