Another soldier was reported missing last week from the Peythalai SLA camp which is located about 2 km. west of Kalkudah on the road to Valaichenai.

The soldiers reported missing from the Kalkudah army camp may have deserted their posts, according to Valaichenai Police sources.

There is no trace of him too the Police said. The civilian has not recovered his bicycle.
