[TamilNet, Saturday, 16 December 2006, 18:27 GMT]
A eleven year old boy was seriously injured when an Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) he found behind his house exploded Saturday around 10:30 a.m, at Aalam Veethy, Meeravodai 4 at Ottamavadi in Valaichenai police division in Batticaloa. The boy was first rushed to Valaichenai hospital and then transferred to Batticaloa Teaching hospital in a critical condition for further treatment, Valaichenai police said.

The injured boy was identified as A. Peroskhan whose face, hands, stomach and legs have been badly injured, hospital sources said.

Meanwhile, Thursday around 1:40 a.m, unidentified persons lobbed a bomb on the house of K. P. S. Hameed, Vice-chairman of Ottamavadi Predeshya Sabai, at M.P.C.Road in Meeravodai, Ottamavadi. Though he and his family were in the house when the bomb exploded, no one was hurt, Valaichenai sources said.

Mr. Hameed, a father of two children and a former Police Sub-inspector, was elected to his post in the Predeshya Sabai election in Meeravodai on a United National Party (UNP) ticket.

Hameed's house suffered damages in the explosion.

Valaichenai police are conducting investigations into this case.
