Masked men in two white vans arriving at the office of Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian Suresh Premachandran in Jaffna town around 7:00 p. m Monday stoned his office while some others attacked the houses of TNA supporters around the same time in Achchuveali, Aavarangkaal and in Vadamaraadchi and Thenmaraadchi, sources in Jaffna said. Meanwhile, more than four bomb explosions and gunshots were heard around from 3:00 to 3:30 a.m Tuesday in some areas in Jaffna town, the sources added. The bomb blasts are said to be caused by persons trying to place the blame on Liberation Tigers for allegedly boycotting the presidential election.

A television operated by Eelam People’s Democratic Party (EPDP) in Jaffna town has been broadcasting that Liberation Tigers have requested the people not to cast their votes in the election and EPDP men are said to be in the background of the bomb blasts and gun shots.

The bomb blasts and gun shots were heard near some polling booths in Jaffna town, the sources said.

The attacks on TNA supporters which began around 7:00 p.m went on till 9:00 p.m, the sources further said.
