Jaffna Magistrate's vehicle escapes attempted attack

[TamilNet, Sunday, 09 July 2006, 09:09 GMT]
Jaffna Additional Magistrate Srinithi Nandasegaran's official car, with her 10-year-old son and a police guard on board, narrowly escaped from an attempted attack Sunday morning on Palaly Road, eyewitnesses said. Uniformed Sri Lanka Army troopers from Kantharmadam Junction followed the Magistrate's well-familiar official vehicle at gun point in an auto-rickshaw, but gave up their mission as they did not find Mrs Srinithi Nandasegaran in the vehicle, civilians who witnessed the incident said. The incident took place around 9:00 a.m. Sunday.

Srinithi Nandasegaran's car was transporting her son to a tuition centre near Parameswara junction from her residence located on Rakka Road in Jaffna.

The driver of Ms Nandasegaran's vehicle said that he has been harassed allegedly by SLA men who had sought details of Nandasegaran's routines recently.
