Two unidentified attackers riding a motorbike lobbed a grenade into a Sri Lanka Army centry post in Kalliyankadu, near Batticaloa Railway station, 2 km off Batticaloa town Sunday evening around 5:45 p.m. Four SLA soldiers narrowly escaped from the attack. A 14-year old boy who was traveling on the street sustained shrapnel wounds, Police said.

The injured boy, Mr. Nadesalingam Krishnakanth, 14, a resident of the 1st cross street in Batticaloa, was rushed to Batticaloa Hospital, sources said.

Two weeks ago, on August 20, one SLA soldier was wounded when unidentified men attacked the checkpoint.
