Sri Lanka Army (SLA) and police have been conducting a search operation throughout Wednesday night in Kokkuvil area where three Sinhala furniture traders were knifed Monday night. Unconfirmed sources in Jaffna said that Koappaay police have arrested three Tamil furniture traders suspected of involvement in the attack. Koappaay police, however, did not confirm the arrest.

All passengers travelling along Aadiyapaatham Veethi, Kaangkeasanthu'rai road and Point Pedro road were ordered out of their vehicles and their national identity cards and other documents checked, Wednesday night.

A gang of eight men arriving on bicycles had inflicted injuries with swords on three Sinhala traders Monday around 7:15 p.m. in Kokkuvil in Jaffna where they were selling furniture along Aadiyapaatham road.
