[TamilNet, Friday, 04 November 2005, 11:22 GMT]
Two men who entered the Liberation Tigers controlled area and attempted to lob grenades at the checkpost were shot while they tried to escape from the Muhamalai checkpoint, civilian sources said. One of the attackers was later rushed to Chavakacheri hospital by the Sri Lanka Army. The incident took place around 1:00 p.m. Friday when the attackers, caught by the personnel manning the checkpoint, tried to escape from the site, sources added.



The wounded person, Mr. Vijeyavarman Mathimugarajah, 27, believed to be one of the attackers, was later transferred to Jaffna Hopital from Chavakacheri Hospital, medical sources said.

The fate of the other attacker is not known.

Mr. Vijeyavarman Mathimugarajah, is the son of late Mr. Pon. Mathimugarajah, the former secretary of the Tamil United Liberation Front (TULF), Jaffna Branch, sources added. Pon. Mathimukarajah was gunned down in December 1998. The Tigers were blamed for the killing by the Sri Lankan Police.
