Mr. S Kuyilinban, head of LTTE's political division for Amparai was admitted to Kalmunai Hospital with serious injuries after he was severely assaulted by Special Task Force commandos at a Tsunami refugee camp 76 kilometres south of Batticaloa Monday. Two LTTE political workers were also seriously injured when the STF assaulted brutally at the Mandaanai Tsunami refugee camp in the Thirukkovil area. The injured LTTE political officer and his colleagues were transferred from Amparai Hospital to Kalmunai for fear of their safety, the LTTE media spokesman for Batticaloa said.
Mr. Kuyilinban had gone to inquire about an incident Monday where the STF had assaulted an LTTE relief worker at the Mandaanai Tsunami refugee camp earlier in the day.
A group of STF commandos set on him and a colleague and brutally assaulted them with rifles and sticks, the LTTE media spokesman said.
