3 killed, 2 injured in Vavuniya bomb explosion

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 10 October 2006, 11:37 GMT]
A bomb concealed in a Dolphin van taken into custody by Vavuniya police 15 days ago exploded Tuesday around 12 noon, half an hour after being released, killing 3 civilians and seriously injuring 2 at Periyarkulam, Poonthottam in Vavuniya, said Mr. Chanthanayake, Officer-in-Charge (OIC) Vavuniya Police.

Anandan, who had driven the released van to his relatives' house at Periyarkulam in Poonthottam, had sounded the horn on finding the gates of the house closed. Karupaiah Palsamy and his wife Vasanthy Palsamy had come out and opened the gate for Anandan. The bomb exploded as the van was being parked, said the Village Council Chairman of the area.

Anandan and the Palsamy couple died on the spot while two women in the neighbouring house were seriously injured.

Palsamy's son, a minor, who was returning from the neighbour's house, escaped with minor injuries, the police said.
