Unknown attackers, believed to be paramilitary operatives, lobbed six grenades on Vanni district Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian Sivanathan Kishore's house located in Rambaikulam, 1 km east of Sri Lanka Army controlled Vavuniya Sunday around 10:00 p.m. The parliamentarian who was at his house narrowly escaped from the attack.

A policeman providing security to the parliamentarian was wounded.

Police said they recovered two unexploded grenades.

Sivanathan Kishore who was the city coroner and a social worker, earlier worked as the head of the Vavuniya branch of the Sri Lanka Red Cross Society (SLRC) before becoming parliamentarian.

Mr. Sivanathan Kishore was arrested and detained by the Sri Lanka Army in 1999.
