LTTE officials said at the press briefing that the home guards had revealed important information during the interrogation.

"We were taken into custody by the LTTE cadres on March 14 when we were riding in a motorbike towards Batticaloa through the road located in the LTTE controlled Eachchilampathu division as we wanted to avoid the Mahindapura army camp because we were under the influence of liquor and also we were not in possession of driving licenses," replied the two home guards to a question at the press briefing, sources said.

When questioned on armed groups, the home guards said, "Jihad group is functioning in Muttur and Thoppur areas. Nassar, Muffaring, Thoufeek, Kanthapody Razik, Nandu and Vanddikuddan are leading the Jihad Group in Muttur and Haja Mohideen, Ubaibula, Nizamdeen, Salim and Saroum in Thoppur areas. However we have no connection with the Jihad group. Members of Jihad Group have connections with officials."

When asked if they had connection with Karuna group as they were working in Valaichchenai Police, both home guards replied, "We learnt that Karuna camp is located close to army camp when we went to Theivuchenai to see a relative. Members of the Karuna camp work with officers of the army camp. We were told that members of the SLA intelligence unit were meeting Karuna group members in the EPDP camp in the area".

Both home guards said that LTTE cadres are treating them very well and that they were happy to hear from the LTTE that they will soon be released.
