[TamilNet, Friday, 03 December 2010, 12:58 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army soldiers on A9 Road opened fire on an uprooted Tamil along the A9 road Friday afternoon near Puththoor junction in Meesaalai. The victim was a psychologically affected male due to the war last year. The soldiers harassed him prompting the victim to attack a soldier and gunned him down, civilians in the area said.

An SLA soldier with wounds was admitted at Chaavakachcheari hospital and later transferred to Jaffna teaching hospital.

Several survivers of genocidal onslaught last year in Vanni are affected by post-traumatic stress disorder and some of them have become seriously ill and lack proper recovery programme, NGO workers in Jaffna said.
