The group of Sri Lankans who were deported from UK are being questioned by the CID at the Bandaranaike International Airport. However despite British media reports the CID claimed that 50 deported Lankans had arrived at the BIA.
The UK newspaper ‘The Guardian’ earlier stated that after several hours of protracted legal wrangles, which saw several Tamils taken off the aircraft and returned to detention centres, the flight left from Stansted airport in Essex at around 8pm, five hours later than planned.
When contacted by Ada Derana Police media spokesman Maxi Proctor confirmed that 42 men and 8 women arrived in Sri Lanka today morning after being deported from the UK.
