Karuna forming a new attack force ex-Tiger cadres

Colombo, 27 June, (Asiantribune.co0m): Karuna is in the process of forming covertly a new strike force with the group of 68 Vanni Tigers who have already surrendered to his group.

According to the latest information, Karuna has assigned one of his most trusted operatives, Sinnathamby to organize the new strike force.

Information confirms that Jeyaraj and Kavithas of the LTTE would lead the strike force.

Sources revealed that these two top-level LTTE cadres surrendered with the Karuna group recently.

Jeyaraj was earlier the leader of the LTTE’s pistol group. He surrendered to Karuna group at Valaichenai. Kavithas who was earlier in charge of supplies to LTTE at Vakarai, surrendered to Sinnathamby at Pulipanchakall area.

The normal practice is to inform either the Sri Lanka Army or else to the STF about LTTE surrendees. Sri Lankan security forces take charge of these LTTE cadres and place them in rehabilitation programs and provide them with secure residential arrangements.

But in the case of the surrendered 68 LTTE cadres Karuna group has failed to notify to the security forces though those cadres surrendered in the government controlled areas. It is suspected that this strike force will be used to attack anti-Karuna group now. Later they are likely to be deployed to threaten rival candidates in any future elections if and when elections are held in the East.

It is now learnt that Karuna has ordered Sinnathamby to provide motorcycles immediately to Jeyaraj and Kavithas and also weapons for their protection.
