Unidentified men lobbed a grenade at a sentry point of the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) located at Mudcove junction, a suburb in Trincomalee town along Mattikali road, Tuesday night around 9.45 p.m. Soldiers manning the sentry point retaliated the attack. A Hindu priest, Mr.Uruthirakurukkal Aravinthakumar (35), and his assistant, Mr.Sivagnanam, who were passing at that time on a motorbike were injured during the incident and were admitted to the Trincomalee general hospital, police said.

Mr.Aravinthakumar who was on the wheel with his assistant on pillion without stopping at the scene of incident had rushed to the Uppuveli Police and made a complaint. Thereafter the Uppuveli Police had taken the victims to the Trincomalee general hospital in their vehicle.

Hospital authorities said both were out of danger. However Mr.Sivagnanam sustained serious injuries, sources said.

Wife of Mr.Aravinthakumar Wednesday made a complaint to the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) in Trincomalee regarding the incident when they were on the way to Periyathoduwai Pillaiyar Temple to make arrangement to hold Aavani Sathurthathi religious rights scheduled to be held Wednesday, SLMM sources said.

The SLMM monitors visited the scene and later visited the hospital where the injured are warded, sources said
