The soldiers were cutting trees to reinforce the SLA camp located near Chullipuram Victoria College when the attack took place.

Security sources, however, said only one soldier was injured. Residents who witnessed the incident said that they saw atleast two soldiers being transported in a vehicle to Palaly Military Hospital.

SLA soldiers immediately cordoned off the area and conducted a house-to-house search, but no one was arrested according to local residents.
