One of the several sentries of the Sri Lanka Army located on Manthikai-Kodikamam road in the Vadamarachchi area in Jaffna district was completely destroyed by fire Wednesday night. The SLA officials immediately launched an inquiry. At the time of the incident no army personnel was in the said sentry, sources said

The SLA had established the said sentry in the residential area of Vallipurakurichchi to strengthen the security of Manthikai-Kodikamam road, sources said.

A team of SLA officials Thursday visited the Vallipurakurichchi area and held investigations into the incident. They questioned several residents of the area, sources said. The SLA recently strengthened the said sentry by constructing barbed wire fence around it, sources said. A chain of army sentries is located on the Manthikai-Kodikamam road.
