Paramilitary cadre injured in shooting

[TamilNet, Sunday, 20 February 2005, 08:40 GMT]
A young person was shot and injured by unidentified gunmen Saturday night around 10.15 in Oddamavady, 34 kilometres north of Batticaloa, Police said. The man, Mr. Vadivel Ravichandran, 22, of Kiran, told Police he was a member of the paramilitary Karuna Group.

The injured man had urged medical officers at Valaichenai hospital where he was admitted Saturday night that he be transferred to Polannaruwa base hospital.

Valaichenai hospital authorities had informed Police that they could not comply with his request as Polannaruwa base hospital is outside the Batticaloa district.

They had, however, explained that the Sri Lanka army had the authority to tranfer the injured man in a military ambulance to Polannaruwa.

The Liberation Tigers allege that the Karuna Group operates from the Polannaruwa region with the aid of Sri Lanka army.

The wounded man was sent to the Batticaloa hospital for treatment. Police said the man was shot at with a pistol.
