Trincomalee town, suburbs' security strengthened

[TamilNet, Sunday, 21 November 2004, 15:26 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) and Sri Lanka Police have deployed more soldiers in strategic points in the Trincomalee town and several parts of the district under their control following several violent incidents that had taken place during the weekend, security sources said.

The security of Trincomalee district has been tightened due to a directive from the Colombo security establishment, which followed the killings of two civilians at Valvettithurai in Jaffna district and bomb attacks on LTTE offices in Batticaloa and killing of a Tamil youth in Seruvila, down south of Trincomalee district during the weekend, police sources said.

Trincomalee Police has deployed emergency units for checking vehicles plying in the east port town. The police, sources said, are also conducting increased foot patrols.

Meanwhile the Seruvila police have interrogated several residents of Hali Oluwa, a new Sinhala settlement where twenty five year old Mr.Krishnapillai Rameswaran was shot dead by unidentified gunmen Saturday when he was at his residence, police said.

The victim was earlier in the LTTE and later left the movement and worked as an informant to the government security forces, sources said.
