Sri Lanka Army (SLA) and police started a large scale cordon and search operation from Thursday early morning in Aalayadiveampu, Koa’laavil and Naavatkaadu in Akkaraipattu in Ampaa'rai district, following the killing of two Sinhalese men at Aalayadiveampu Wednesday around 9:00 p.m, Akkaraipattu police said.

Residents in the above areas were taken to three different places and were paraded before masked spotters, sources in Ampaa'rai said.

Government officials were the first to undergo the identification parade. They were released after their National Identity Cards (NIC) were checked.

The SLA took video of the faces as they paraded before the spotters.

The number of people arrested in this search is not known.

The Sinhala me killed Wednesday were the driver and cleaner of a lorry that was transporting furniture from Ampaa’rai to a shop in Aalayadiveampu owned by a Tamil trader.

The victims were identified as Sumith Rajaratna, 46, the driver and Nimal Balagale, 28, the cleaner, both from Panagama area in Uva province.

The police recovered the two bodies and handed them over to Akkaraipattu Base Hospital for inquest into death to be held.

Unidentified gunmen on a motor cycle had abducted the two while they were asleep in the lorry and had shot them killed at Makasakthi road.

The house to house search has not ended until Thursday noon.
