Shot by LTTE: Intelligence officer dies while being airlifted to Colombo

Two Police officers of the National Intelligence Bureau attached to the Karaitivu Special Task Force in Ampara district were shot at and severely wounded yesterday morning at Kalmunai by two LTTE cadres on motorcycles, the Military Spokesman said yesterday.

One of the NIB officers Sgt. M.O.L. Rafaideen succumbed to his injuries while being airlifted to the Colombo National Hospital. Rafaideen and PC B.G. Kapilasiri, the injured policemen, were rushed to Ashraff Hospital and soon afterwards, airlifted to Colombo.

Sources said the two men were heading towards Ampara from the Kalmunai ASP’s office on a motor-cycle, when the gunman lying in wait on a motor-cycle had opened fire at them.

During an immediate search operation, police recovered 10 nine millimetre pistol rounds at the scene of the crime. The Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission visited the scene. The Kalmunai police are investigating.
