A 30 year old woman identified as Kalavathy Subramanium was killed in the SLA's retaliatory fire following the attack.

The wounded SLA soldiers are P.P.S.Rajapakse (22), C.K.Veeraperume (27) and K.J.Sarathchandra (28).

Meanwhile two SLA soldiers riding a motorcycle, escorting an army convoy, were wounded when they were attacked by the Liberation Tigers in Morakoddanchenai in the Batticaloa district around 1.15 p.m.

The attack took place about 200 meters from the Morakoddanchenai SLA camp.
