Two civilians, one Muslim and a Tamil were killed and another injured when Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers who were lying in ambush between Kurankupanchchan and Uharveddu in the Kinniya division opened fire, around 10:00 p.m., Saturday. The victims were returning with firewood in two bullock carts when they were fired at by the SLA ambush party with small arms.

The dead were identified as Kathirgamathamby Mathivanan (42) of Eachantivu and Mohamed Remis (20) of Faizal Nagar in Kinniya town.

The injured civilian, Pitchaithamby Cassim (22), is warded in the Trincomalee general hospital, sources said.

The bodies of the dead have been brought to their residences in Eachantivu and Faizal Nagar. However, the Police have requested their families to bring the bodies to Kantalai district hospital for post-mortem examination as the area where the incident took place comes the jurisdiction of the Kantalai Magistrate Court, sources said.

The area where the shooting took place is located in Van-Ella Police Division.
