Claymore remote detonation device found in Mannar

[TamilNet, Saturday, 14 January 2006, 15:29 GMT]
A remote control device and several parts of an equipment needed to detonate a claymore mine were found in a parcel abandoned near the Pesalai Peripheral OPD Unit Saturday morning around 9.30 a.m., sources in Mannar said. A minor employee of the Pesalai Peripheral Unit (PPU) OPD immediately brought to the notice of the medical officer in charge of that time after he found the parcel in the premises of the PPU, Police sources said. The medical officer promptly conveyed the message to the Mannar Bishop through Pesalai Parish Priest Rev.Fr.Vincent Patrick who informed the Police of the whereabouts of the parcel.

A group of soldiers of the Sri Lanka Navy and Police thereafter rushed to the site and took in charge of the parcel and found a new remote control device and other accessories necessary to trigger a claymore mine's detonation, security sources said.

Security forces searched the area where the parcel was found from 9.30 a.m. till about 10.30 a.m.

Thereafter the security forces conducted a search operation along St Jude's Church Road which is located in Ward No 8, Pesalai, sources said.
