Two SLA troopers injured in Point Pedro grenade attack

[TamilNet, Saturday, 03 December 2005, 14:44 GMT]
Two Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers providing security to the Sri Lanka Telecom's Transmission tower based in Malusanthi in Vadamaradchy were seriously injured when unknown assailants riding in a motorbike hurled a grenade at the sentry at 6.10 p.m. Saturday, sources said. The injured soldiers have been taken to Palaly military hospital for treatment. Malusanthi is a town located 3 km southwest of Point Pedro town and lies between Manthikai hospital and Nelliady on the Point Pedro Jaffna road.

No one was injured when soldiers fired indiscriminately after the explosion, sources said.

Meanwhile, a bowzer distributing water to SLA troops came under gunfire in Ariyalai, Jaffna along the Kandy-Jaffna A9 road. Although the gunmen aimed at the bowzer driver, no one was injured in the attack, Jaffna military sources said. The vehicle sustained damages, according to eye witnesses.

Four traders arrested by the SLA following the attack on a checkpost in Kantharmadam, close to Parameswara Junction at 2:30 p.m Saturday, were released after the intervention of the members of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM), sources in Jaffna said. One of the traders has sustained injuries to his hand and has been admitted to the Jaffna Teaching Hospital.

Security has been strengthened in Kantharmadam areas and SLA has established scheckpoints at several points in the area, sources said.
