Three paramilitary cadres who were on a penetration mission into the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam controlled area in Pendukalsenai, west of Kiran in Batticaloa district, were killed when Tigers launched a counter-attack on the attack group, LTTE's Kudumbimalai area coordinator Oliyan told media Tuesday. One paramilitary cadre was captured by the LTTE.

The paramilitary cadres killed by the Tigers were: Gnanamuttu Kohulan, 23, and Kopalan Thiruvendran, 20, from Korakallimadu in Kiran and Kandasamy Sinnavan, 24, from Muruthhanai in Pendukalsenai.

Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission officials have visited the Pulipaynthakal area in LTTE controlled area where the dead bodies of the paramilitary caders were being kept.

The dead bodies were to be handed over to their relatives, Oliyan further said.

The Tigers also captured two claymore mines, one T-56 rifles with 3 magazines, four grenades and a 200 meter long wire from the group.

The attack group was also involved in the penetration mission last Thursday in Vakaneri, according to Oliyan.
