Two SLA troopers injured in Chullipuram attack

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 30 May 2006, 15:40 GMT]
Two Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers were seriously injured when a group of five unidentified gunmen fired at soldiers working in a compound near Chulipuram junction in Valligamam Tuesday 12:00 noon, sources in Jaffna said. The soldiers were cutting trees to reinforce the SLA camp located near Chullipuram Victoria College when the attack took place.

Security sources, however, said only one soldier was injured. Residents who witnessed the incident said that they saw atleast two soldiers being transported in a vehicle to Palaly Military Hospital.

SLA soldiers immediately cordoned off the area and conducted a house-to-house search, but no one was arrested according to local residents.

Road leading to Karainagar in the Jaffna Islets from Chullipuram was blocked for vehicular traffic most of the afternoon, residents said.
