[TamilNet, Tuesday, 16 December 2008, 15:21 GMT]
Special Task Force (STF) commandos assaulted four sisters heavily with batons and sticks Tuesday around 9:00 a.m when they launched a cordon and search around Village No. 40 in Batticaloa district, according to the residents of the village. The STF commandos had warned the sisters that their entire family will be killed if anyone attacked the STF.

The sisters injured in the assault are A. Kayalvili, 24, A. Rani, 26, A. Tharsini, 18 and A. Packiyavathi, 16, a student.

The STF commandos had forced all the residents of Village No. 40 to gather in a public place and subjected them to rigorous interrogation during which the above sisters were assaulted.

Families in Ka’luthaava’lai and Eruvil had been killed earlier while Vairamuthu Rajani, a 30-year-old woman, was assaulted, resulting in a broken arm, in November during a similar cordon and search.
