Six drowned in Ampara lake

[TamilNet, Monday, 11 January 1999, 18:06 GMT]
Five Sri Lankan Policemen and their boatman met their watery death last evening in the Kondawattawan lake in the Ampara district.

The boat in which they were travelling had overturned when the Policemen had got scared by some wild elephants who had wandered into the lagoon as a result of the recent floods in the jungle.

The dead were a Police inspector, a sergeant, two police constables and a clerk in Police department.

Only two bodies have been recovered so far said Police sources in Ampara.
