SL military squad attacks paper office, curbs paper dissemination in Vanni

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 03 April 2013, 10:55 GMT]
A squad operated by the Sri Lankan military intelligence on Wednesday stormed the Ki'linochchi office of the Uthayan daily around 4:30 a.m., when the distributors of the paper arrived at the office to unload the papers for distribution. The branch manager of the office and four distributors sustained injuries and three of them with serious injuries have been admitted at Ki'linochchi hospital. The office, subjected to the attack is situated on Karadippoakku Junction on A9 Road, heavily guarded by the occupying SL military. The attack has been carried out in a similar fashion as the one reported Saturday on the meeting of ITAK, a constituent party of the Tamil National Alliance.

The SL military has been stepping up attacks on Tamil paper distributors in Jaffna, Ki'linochchi, Mullaiththeevu and Vavuniaya dsitricts in recent times.

The office has sustained damage and the computers have been smashed, according to E. Saravanapavan, the owner of the paper, who is a TNA parliamentarian representing Jaffna district. He had narrowly escaped from the attack on ITAK meeting on Saturday.

A vehicle and two motorbikes have also been damaged in the attack, which has been carried out by the SL military.
