A clash took place when a search party of LTTE fighters went in search of members of DPU unit after receiving information that a DPU group has infiltrated Kirimichchai area.

About 15 members of the paramilitaries and soldiers of the SLA were part of the group which was repulsed to the Kirimichchai SLA camp, Dayamohan said.

SLA soldiers from Karadikulam and Mankerni camps had provided artillery and RPG fire support to the DPU unit during their withdrawal, Dayamohan added.
