EPDP cadres from the Karaithivu office handed over his body to the Kalmunai hospital.

Meanwhile suspected members of the Liberation Tigers fired at policemen who were riding on two motorcycles in Eravur, about 15 km. north of Batticaloa, around 7.30 a.m. today. However, the policemen escaped unhurt, sources said.

Police sources said the attackers have taken away the motorcycles, left behind by the policemen.
