A 13-year-old boy, his 14-year-old sister, and their mother were wounded when unknown attackers lobbed a grenade Saturday night around 8:40 p.m. on the front-yard of the residence of a reputed trader in Vavuniya, Police said. The cause of the attack on the house of the businessman, Chandrakumar, the owner of Gopi Agency, is not known, the Police said. This is the fifth grenade attack to be reported in Vavuniya town within the past 7 days, sources said.

A relative of Chandrakumar, J. Sarojinidevi, 36, and her two children, Sureja, 14, and Thamilchelvan, 13, were wounded in the attack in front of the villa of the house located on Kathiresan lane.

The children are being treated at Anuradhapura hospital, medical sources said.

Chandrakumar's son, Gopianandan, sustained minor injuries in the attack, sources added.

Meanwhile, civilian sources said that incidents of extortions allegedly paramilitary cadres have escalated despite the expectations of decrease in violence following the agreement reached between the LTTE and the Government Sri Lanka this week.

A private tutor, Kamalachandran, was killed by unknown gunmen in Vavuniya, on January 23.

On Friday, Vavuyina observed a shut down in protest against the civilian killings in the Northeast.
