[TamilNet, Friday, 13 February 2004, 16:41 GMT]
The Chavakachcheri Police Friday filed plaint against two soldiers of the Sri Lanka Army in the Magistrate’s court, charging them for causing injuries to a Tamil civilian by hitting him with their field motorbike on January 9th along the Post Office road in Chavakachcheri, legal sources said.

According to the complaint lodged at the Chavakachcheri Police Station, the injured civilian had stated that when he was cycling along the post office road two members of SLA field motor bike group came at a high speed from the camp and collided their motor bike with his cycle, causing him severe injuries, legal sources said.

The Magistrate, Mr.P.Subramaniam, who entertained the plaint directed the SL military police to furnish a report regarding this incident and put off further inquiry for March 5, legal sources said.

Meanwhile, civil sources Friday said the SLA has increased its field motorbike group patrol in the Jaffna peninsula and soldiers are seen frequently riding motorbikes at high speeds on the main roads, with their faces covered with black clothes.
