Evidence in Vavuniya grenade attack case sent to analyst

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 05 August 2003, 03:13 GMT]
The Vavuniya District Judge Monday ordered the Police to send the evidence gathered at the political office of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam in Vavuniya, where there was a grenade on July 28, to the Sri Lankan government analyst for his report.

When the case was taken up at the District Court Monday, the Police officer in charge of crime prevention in Vavuniya, Inspector Wijeratne, produced fragments of the grenade used in the attack and soil samples from the LTTE office, and told the Judge that the evidence should be analyzed.

The Judge directed the Government Analyst that he wanted a report on whether the grenade used in the attack was made locally or imported from abroad, and what the type of grenade was.

The grenade attack on the LTTE office in Vavuniya on July 28 wounded the LTTE's political officer, Mr. Kutty.

Meanwhile, the Judge also ordered Inspector Wijeratne to investigate and identify the suspects and produce them in court.
