[TamilNet, Thursday, 10 November 2005, 11:24 GMT]
Unidentified attackers lobbed a grenade into the premises of the lodge owned by Jaffna Tamil National Alliance (TNA) MP Mr. Suresh Premachandran at 4:30 a.m. Thursday. The lodge is located in Kattaipirai on Jaffna Point Pedro Road. No one was injured in the incident.

Neighbours in the area said that they heard the sound of a speeding motorbike following the grenade explosion.

Suresh Premachandran's main office is located in Jaffna and he does not use lodge except on special occasions, sources added.

The MP left for Kilinochchi with fellow TNA MPs for a crucial conference with Liberation Tigers Political Wing Thursday morning.

Suresh Premachandran is the leader of Eelam Peoples Revolutionary Liberation Front (EPRLF).

Meanwhile, there have been reports in Jaffna of the presence of paramilitary cadres belonging to ENDLF, a group which was based in South India and was also known to operate in the Polannaruwa district with the Karuna Group.
