The SLA retaliated with mortar attack and gunfire for 20 minutes, added the sources.

The SLA troopers, conducting search operation immediately after the incident, found the dead body of a Tamil at the edge of the Kumaraveliyar village and handed it over to Eravur District hospital, said the sources.
