An employee at the World Bank funded North East Housing Reconstruction Project (NEHRP) in Anpuvallipuram and an unidentified Tamil youth in Paliayootu were shot dead in Trincomalee in two separate incidents, sources in Trincomalee said.

Muthu Mohanaraja, 24, was shot dead Monday night around 10:00 p.m. in Anpuvallipuram, a suburb in Trincomalee town where he had been residing. He was employed as driver in NEHRP, sources said.

In another incident an unidentified Tamil was shot dead Saturday around 7:30 p.m. His hands were tied behind.

Both bodies had been brought to Trincomalee general hospital for post-mortem examination.

Trincomalee Magistrate visited the scenes of crime, sources said.

Meanwhile, a claymore mine placed near the sixth mile post along Trincomalee-Nilaveli road exploded. No one was injured in the explosion.

Security sources said the claymore mine had been placed targeting a navy vehicle carrying troops, but exploded after the SLN vehicle passed the site.
