Unidentified persons triggered a claymore device Tuesday around 8:30 a.m on the Jaffna-Pt.Pedro road at Sirupitty in Valligamam east, killing a Sri Lanka Army (SLA) trooper on the spot and seriously injuring another of the SLA Road patrol unit going along the road, sources from Jaffna said. Following the attack, SLA troopers ordered the hundreds of passengers out of their vehicles which happened to pass the site of attack and assaulted them indiscriminately. The glass shutters of the vehicles the passengers were travelling in were smashed by the infuriated SLA troopers.

The school children, teachers, government officials and others on their way to work in the morning were the people beaten by the SLA troopers.

Kopay Teachers' Training College vehicle, Public Transport buses and private vehicles were damaged in the SLA attack.

All the passengers and passers by were held by the SLA troopers for more than an hour while the surroundings of the area was cordoned off and searched by the SLA.
