He said that the number plates of the vehicles in which the assailants came were covered. The TNA has complained to the Police in Kalmunai about the attacks.

Five TNA campaign offices in the Akkaraipattu, Panankaadu, Kolaavil on the island’s southeastern coast were attacked between 8 p.m. and 10.30 p.m. Wednesday night. The TNA office in Kolaavil was burnt down.

Later in the Kalmunai sector, about 30 kilometres north of the Akkaraipattu-Kolaavil area, five offices were attacked between midnight and 3 a.m. Thursday.

Two offices in the area were burnt by the attackers.

“The EPDP is desperate. It is therefore resorting to such intimidation tactics to scare our supporters away from us”, Mr. Henry Mahendran said.
