A sentry post of Sri Lankan homeguards and the army is located in Natrapaalathadi enroute from Ottamaavedi to the LTTE controlled area in Vahaneri.

The name and other details of the victim and his wife are yet unknown.

Natrapaalathadi is located about 1.5 kilometers from Oddamaavedi, and 33 kilometers north of Batticaloa.
