More civilians, SLA troubles erupt in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Friday, 11 March 2005, 10:25 GMT]
Restive crowds pelted Sri Lanka army (SLA) troops and blocked the Nelliyadi-Kodikamam main road with burning tires at Kalikai Junction, Thunnalai in Jaffna demanding the arrest of an SLA soldier who had allegedly attempted to molest a married woman in the area in the early hours of Friday morning. Crowds dispersed only after Police promised to bring the alleged offender to book. Later in the day, crowds tried to set fire to an SLA vehicle that knocked and wounded a man in Chavakachcheri town. The crowds also set fire to a Sri Lanka army sentry in Chavakachcheri town during the stand off that developed after the incident.

Police and military tear gassed and dispersed the crowds. However, the stand off continued with some of them pelting the Sri Lankan armed forces deployed at the scene of the accident.

The injured man is Mr. S. Manoharan.
