[TamilNet, Friday, 08 September 2006, 11:40 GMT]
Four students and a policeman were injured when a three-wheeler exploded Friday morning around 6.55 a.m. at Kulumaattu junction in Vavuniya. The explosion took place while policemen were recovering the body of a homeguard from a hijacked three-wheeler.

Unknown attackers had abducted two home guards Thursday at Pandarikulam in Vavuniya. One of the two homeguards who were deployed as security to Mr.Santha Punchihewa, former parliamentarian of the Vavuniya district, was killed and his body was lying inside the three-wheeler, belonging to a Sinhala resident of Mamaduva, that had been hijacked on Wednesday by some unidentified men, police sources said.

The other homeguard, who escaped with injuries, sought refuge in the nearby police check point and tipped the police of the three-wheeler. He was admitted to the Vavuniya hospital.

On receipt of information the police rushed to the site where a three-wheeler was parked. On inspection the police found a parcel and the dead body. The explosion took place while the policemen were inspecting the vehicle.
