Police post attacked

[TamilNet, Thursday, 02 April 1998, 23:59 GMT]
The Liberation Tigers attacked a Sri Lankan Police post in Thoppur 25 km south of Trincomalee on Muthur - Seruvila road, this morning around 12.30 a.m., wounding four policemen. The Tigers took away a bus that was parked at the post, said Police sources in Trincomalee.

Casualties were minimal as the policemen manning the post made a tactical withdrawal, said police sources.

The Tigers removed 12 T-56 assault riffles, 2 mortars and uniforms from the police post, said sources.

A group of 350 Tigers attacked the Thoppur police post which was situated in a school building, said police sources in Trincomalee.

It is not known whether the Tigers suffferd any casualty.

The SLA has thinned out its positions in many parts of the Trincomalee district since it launched Operation Jayasikurui in May 1997 to open the strategic high way to the Jaffna peninsula.

The Sri Lankan Police, trained and armed for combat duties has been deployed in some vital areas in the Muthur region south of the Trincomalee bay.

Meanwhile one SLA soldier was injured when the Liberation Tigers opened small arm fire at 233-division headquarters in Batticaloa, said sources in Batticaloa.
