Criminal Investigation Department (CID) officers in Vavuniya have arrested and brought before Vavuniya Judge, a police officer Wednesday on alleged suspicion of involvement in the massacre of five Farm School students and indiscriminate fire on students inside the school premises last Saturday. The police officer, attached to a Police post in Thirunavatkulam, 250 meters west of the Farm School, was alleged to have rushed to the school and joined the Sri Lanka Army troopers from a nearby checkpost, when they fired indiscriminately at the students inside the school premises, legal sources in Vavuniya said.

Vavuniya district judge Mr. Manickavasagam Ilancheliyan ordered the Police to detain the police officer till December 05 when an identification parade is expected to be held.

Following a Claymore attack Saturday morning in Thandikulam five Sri Lanka Army soldiers were killed and 4 wounded, close to the Farm School.

SLA troopers entered the school premises and shot indiscriminately at the students engaged in practicals.

A student, Sinthujan, who explained in Sinhala that they were innocent students attending the courses at the Farm School, was shot and killed in execution-style and the troopers fired indiscriminately at the students.

5 students were killed and 8 wounded.
