Grenade attack on Batticaloa TELO office

[TamilNet, Saturday, 18 February 2006, 11:37 GMT]
Unidentified attackers hurled grenades at the the Batticaloa Tamil Eelam Liberation Organization (TELO) offices located at the Sri Sabaratnam Road in Batticaloa town Friday night 9.30 p.m., sources said. Explosions destroyed a motorbike parked in front of the building and damaged the front entrance of the building. No one was reported injured.

Police security at the office witnessed two attackers who had come in a motorbike. Although the police fired at the attackers they escaped unhurt, sources said.

In a similar grenade incident on 13th February, unidentified attackers wounded a TELO party official and narrowly missed Indrakumar Prasanna, who is the General Secretary of TELO, a party in the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) coalition. Mr. Indrakumar is the Chief Candidate representing the Tamil National Alliance in Batticaloa Municipal Council elections.
