They are admitted to Batticaloa hospital with serious injuries.

The men led by the Chief Minister had assaulted the two members when heated arguments arose between him and the two members during the meeting, the sources said.

Both parties have registered complaints with Batticalao police who are investigating into the incident.

Meanwhile, BMC member K. Arumailingam and S. Sasikumar had assaulted an employee of BMC on 7th August 2010 in the premises of Batticaloa Maamaangkeasvarar temple who was admitted in the hospital.
