SLA troops search Eastern University

[TamilNet, Thursday, 14 June 2001, 03:12 GMT]
The Sri Lanka army cordoned off and searched the eastern University campus in Vanthaarumoolai, 18 kilometres north of Batticaloa, from early morning Thursday. Soldiers barred university staff who reported to work in the morning from entering the campus. Sources said that the army began searching the Eastern University premises following a clash between an SLA ambush party and a group of Tigers in the early hours of the morning around 1.30 p.m. at a crossing point close to the campus, sources said.

The Batticaloa district's hinterland, controlled by the Tigers, lies less than two kilometres west of the Eastern University campus in Vanthaarumoolai.

Meanwhile a policeman was shot dead by unidentified armed men at Eravur, 14 km. north of Batticaloa, around 11.45 p.m. Wednesday. The policeman, M.Nazar was on his way for duty at the Batticaloa police station sources said.
