Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers shot dead a Tamil youth in a location between Chenkalady Black Bridge and Kumaraveliyar village in Eravur police division in Batticaloa district Tuesday around 5.45 p.m, sources said. The shooting followed an attack on the SLA patrol unit on the Badula road near the Black Bridge, said sources in Batticaloa. The SLA retaliated with mortar attack and gunfire for 20 minutes, added the sources.

The SLA troopers, conducting search operation immediately after the incident, found the dead body of a Tamil at the edge of the Kumaraveliyar village and handed it over to Eravur District hospital, said the sources.

The SLA maintains that it was the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) who attacked them and the dead youth an LTTE cadre.
