Mr.Visu (Sinnathamby Gopalan), who was appointed as the political head of the Karuna group in Batticaloa and Amparai districts by the renegade commander Vinayagamoorthy Muraleetharan when he broke away from the Liberation Tigers, rejoined the LTTE Wednesday afternoon in Batticaloa town, sources said.

Mr. Visu, a close associate of renegade commander Karuna, went over to the LTTE Wednesday afternoon in the Batticaloa town. More military and political cadres of the Karuna group returned to the LTTE Wednesday. Karuna and Visu are from the same village, Kiran, which is located about 28 km south of Batticaloa town, sources said.

Mr.Visu was a senior member of the LTTE in Batticaloa.

A wounded leader of the military unit of the Karuna group also made contacts with the LTTE leaders in Batticaloa Wednesday, sources said.

LTTE sources further said that they are now in the process of re-organizing and revamping their political and administrative structures in the districts of Batticaloa and Amparai after the retrieval of the area from the Karuna group.

The LTTE also said they are expediting the work of restoring normalcy in the two districts that had been disrupted by the activities of the renegade group.
