A cadre of a search party of LTTE fighters, who went in search of Deep Penetration Unit (DPU) attackers who had moved into the LTTE controlled territory in Kirimichchai area in Vaharai region of Batticaloa district, was gunned down by DPU gunmen, Tuesday around 6:00 a.m., according to the Political Section of the Tigers in Batticaloa.

LTTE cadre Pallavan (Sivalinkam Sivakumar), 24, was from Panichchankerni and a father of a child, P. Dayamohan, Batticaloa District Political Head of the LTTE told media.

A clash took place when a search party of LTTE fighters went in search of members of DPU unit after receiving information that a DPU group has infiltrated Kirimichchai area.

About 15 members of the paramilitaries and soldiers of the SLA were part of the group which was repulsed to the Kirimichchai SLA camp, Dayamohan said.

SLA soldiers from Karadikulam and Mankerni camps had provided artillery and RPG fire support to the DPU unit during their withdrawal, Dayamohan added.
