The Police in the area had fired indiscriminately from their positions nearby following the incident.

This is the fourth army informant to be shot dead since Friday (Two in Vavuniya and two in Batticaloa) .

Meanwhile the SLA and the SLAF in Batticaloa fired mortar and heavy artillery in the general direction of Paduvankarai - the large western hinterland of the Batticaloa district controlled by the Liberation Tigers.
