LTTE member Gobi and two others killed

terrorist    LTTE member Gobi and two others were killed following a confrontation with the army in Vavuniya late last night, the army said today.

“The three suspects were identified as Gobi,Appan, and Thevian. Judicial inquiry is being held at the scene of the shooting,” Army spokesman Ruwan Wanigasooriya said.

This is the first time since the end of the war in May 2009 that a clash had taken place between LTTE members and the army.

“The three suspects were identified as Gobi,Appan, and Thevian. Judicial inquiry is being held at the scene of the shooting,” Army spokesman Ruwan Wanigasooriya said.

“The detectives recovered arms, ammunition, explosives and other material from the hideout,” he said.

A massive search operation had been launched recently in the north for Gobi and Appan. Both men were believed to have been involved in an attempt to revive the LTTE in Sri Lanka.
