SLA soldier injured in grenade attack in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 27 May 2008, 14:09 GMT]
Unidentified persons lobbed a hand grenade Monday around 7:00 p.m on a major Sri Lanka Army (SLA) sentry post located at Hospital Road-Temple Road junction, seriously injuring a SLA soldier.

Unconfirmed reports said that the SLA soldier was killed while Sri Lanka Defence Ministry sources said that a soldier was injured in the above grenade attack.

The attack took place during the one-hour power cut in the Jaffna peninsula.

The SLA troops in the sentry post had opened fire at random on being attacked.

SLA launched a large scale cordon and search operation Tuesday early morning in the said area extending beyond Hospital Road to Chu’ndikku’li, Kurunakar and areas close to Jaffna Bishop House.

SLA did not permit anyone entering these areas during the search but persons within these places were allowed to go out to attend personal errands.

The persons thus allowed to leave these areas, however, were not permitted to return to their places until afternoon.

Anyone being arrested in the cordon and search was not known until evening.

Kurunakar fishermen were unable to go fishing due to the SLA cordon and search, fisheries society sources said.
