Paramilitary infighting spreads
The latest incident of paramilitary infighting occurred in Vavuniya Town today. Mr. Sinnathamby Ganeshalingam alias Farook, a senior cadre and central committee member of the PLOTE (armed gang that works with the Sri Lanka Arm) has been reported missing.
Sources in the town suggest that he may have been abducted by the EPDP (another armed gang). Residents say that this is the latest incident in the long running tit-for-tat violent campaign between the two armed gangs.
Reports suggest that the Sri Lanka Army, who are incidentally the pay masters of both PLOTE and EPDP are attempting defuse tensions between the two gangs.
