SLA field-bike elite troops attack students in Valikaamam

[TamilNet, Friday, 06 June 2008, 03:53 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) field-bike elite troops severely assaulted Wednesday evening a Jaffna University student when a group of students stood talking on the side of a road in Eazhaalai area in Valikaamam North, seriously injuring him, sources in Jaffna said.

The injured student was identified as S. Sathiyan, 24.

The elite SLA troops rode into the group of students without any warning and indiscriminately attacked them, the students said.

Residents of the area found Sathiyan Thursday morning lying along the road, and rushed him to Jaffna Teaching Hospital where he is receiving treatment for his injuries.

Two of his friends sustained minor injuries in the attack.

Eazhaalai is located on the edge of the SLA High Security Zone in Valikaamam North.

Complaints have been lodged with the Human Rights Commission Jaffna office and the local government officials.
