The first attack launched around 8:30 a.m. along Udupidy- Vathiry road in Navindiln a SLA trooper was seriously injured, and an hour later in a second attack near Athiyady Kovil on Beach Road in Valvettithurai, a SLA trooper was killed on the spot, sources in Point Pedro said.

The injured trooper was rushed to Manthikai hospital in Point Pedro first and then transferred to Palaly Military hospital for additional treatment.

Identity of the troopers killed and injured are not yet known.

Areas around where claymore explosion occurred were cordoned off and searched by SLA and police causing tension and insecurity among the residents. Traffic in these areas were blocked during the search.

On Sunday a SLA trooper was seriously injured when a claymore attached to a tree along the Uddupiddy-Vathiry road near Irumpu Mathavady exploded on soldiers returning to their camps in Nelliyady, Karaveddy 4 km southwest of Point Pedro after conducting a cordon and search operation in Vathiry.
