The dead were identified as Vasanthakumar from Mu'l'livaaykkaal, Murugathaas from Ampalavan Pokka'nai, Thanusan (son of Murugathaas), Ganesh (Brother of Murugathaas), Ms Yogamalar, and Ganga (daughter of Yogamalar), officials of the NorthEast Secretariat on Human Rights (NESoHR).

Chithra 26, wife of Vasanthakumar, Sujithan (son of Vasanthakumar, 18 months old child), 9-year-old Janani (daughter of Murugathaas), and Vinojini were seriously injured and have been admitted to Mullaiththeevu hospital.
