Two associates of renegade Liberation Tigers' commander, 'Karuna', were killed and six wounded when an LTTE special forces group attacked the house in which they were staying in a village near the Batticaloa-Polannaruwa district border in the early hours of Monday morning around 2 a.m. Police said. LTTE troopers left behind the 'Karuna Group' cadres who were killed and wounded in the pre-dawn attack in Nagastenne, an interior Sinhala village about 68 kilometres northwest of Batticaloa.

Sri Lanka army transferred the wounded Karuna Group cadres from the Polannaruwa Base Hospital to Colombo later in the morning on Monday.

Police brought the bodies of the paramilitary cadres who were killed in the LTTE attack along with the wounded and handed them over to the Welikanda Hospital early morning Monday.

The wounded Karuna Group cadres were then rushed by Sri Lanka army to the Polannaruwa Base and later transferred to Colombo.
