Mr. Sunil, a Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldier, was killed, and his wife and brother-in-law were injured when unknown assailants hurled a grenade and opened fire inside the soldier's house located in Sangamam, a suburb located about five km northeast of Trincomalee town along Kandy-Trincomalee highway Tuesday night around 9 p.m, sources in Trincomalee said.

The injured are warded in the Trincomalee general hospital, sources said.

The soldier's death brought the number of killings in a three day period in Trincomalee to four marking an escalation in violence in the district.

A Sinhalese trader Mr. Albert Hendric Weerakody was shot dead on December 24th night. Next day night two three-wheeler drivers Tamils were killed in two separate incidents, police said
