Paramilitary cadre injured in sniper attack

[TamilNet, Sunday, 08 October 2006, 16:56 GMT]
A member of the Razik paramilitary group was injured in a sniper attack by unknown gunmen Saturday at 6:00 p.m. at the Vavunativu Sri Lanka Army (SLA) camp in Batticaloa, said civil society sources.

S. Ganeshamoorthy, 38, was admitted to the Batticaloa Teaching hospital with serious injuries, hospital sources said.

Vavunathivu is located 7 km north west of Batticaloa town.

The Razeek Group was one of the most effective paramilitaries that were involved in counter insurgency operation against the Liberation Tigers by SLA Special Forces in Sri Lanka’s east coast.

The group began steadily losing its counter insurgency role since its feared leader, 'Razeek,' (Muthtulingam Ganeshakumar) was killed in a suicide attack in May 1999.

The Group’s numbers dwindled rapidly due to the actions of ‘moles’ infiltrated by LTTE and by desertions that the SLA says were caused by the Tigers coaxing or bribing key operatives of the paramilitary into returning to normal life.

The few who remained were co-opted into the Sri Lanka's National Guard (SLNG) on recommendation by the Sri Lanka army military intelligence.
