On Wednesday, P.M.M.A.Cader, a media person working for several years in the Ampaa'rai district, was severely assaulted on Wednesday by a councillor of the Kalmunai Municipal Council when the journalist was on his way to Maruthamunai to collect information about displaced persons due to the recent floods. Mr. Cader has been warded in Maruthamunai base hospital.

A complaint has been lodged in the Kalmunai police station.

On December 11, Manikapody Sasikumar, Batticaloa correspondent of Thinakkural, a Colombo Tamil daily, was assaulted by unidentified armed persons.

But the police fail to take action against the attackers even after complaints are made, media sources in the East complain.
