Attack outside EPDP office in Manthikai Junction

Disturbances have flared up after unidentified gunmen lobed a grenade out side EPDP (armed gang of Tamil youth working with Sri Lankan Military Intelligence) office at Manthikai Junction in Jaffna.

It is suspected that ‘temporarily hired’ members of the EPDP who had not received their payments for their service in the recent elections may have carried out this attack.

Never the less, the SL army and the police reacted via adopting the popular methods of arresting all youth on site (30 in total in this incident), forcibly shutting down all businesses and bringing public transport to a stand still.
