[TamilNet, Monday, 27 October 2008, 20:38 GMT]
Liberation Tigers of Tamileelam (LTTE) in Batticaloa district attacked a key paramilitary camp of the paramilitary group TMVP in the early hours of Tuesday, killing four operatives and capturing six gunmen from the camp, located at Chengka'ladi, 13 km northwest of Batticaloa city, according to the Batticaloa Command of the LTTE. Despite the LTTE claim of their attack on the TMVP within a few hours of the raid, the Pillayan faction of the TMVP blamed Karuna operatives for the attack. The Sri Lankan Police said that the Tigers were behind the raid that killed four operatives, Pushpan, Rajan, Mani Master and Ravi.

The Tiger commandos who were in control of the paramilitary camp have seized eight assault rifles and ammunitions before destroying the installation.

The attack was launched at 12:15 a.m. on Tuesday. Five T-56 type-2 assault rifles and three T-56 type-1 assault rifles were seized in the raid, the Tigers told media.

Police identified five of the missing TMVP personnel as Sriyan, Kannan, Navaneethan, Kamalanathan and Maran.
