The wounded persons were taken to Akkaraayan hospital. The victims lost blood due to the delay in transporting them to the hospital as the attack had taken place in the early hours, according to Mr. Ratnakumar.

The wounded were identified as Ma. Vinaayakamoorthy, the driver of the vehicle, Tharmajeyanthan, 35, from Arasapuram, Poonakari , and Elilmekavarnan, 37, from Ka'rukkaayththeevu, Poonakari.

The supply lorry, with the registration number 47-3141, damaged in the attack arrived very late due to the delay in crossing the entry/exit point at Oamanthai in Vavuniyaa.
