Colombo, 23 August, ( Intelligence sources reveal that the Tamil Tiger outfit has dispatched two women suicide bombers to Colombo either to hug or kiss Douglas Devananda in Rajiv Gandhi style operation.

After getting Lakshman Kadirgamar LTTE will now concentrate on Douglas Devananda who has been high on their hit list, according to these sources. They had tried ten times on previous occasions to get him.

The last was on 07 July 2004, when a woman suicide bomber entered his Kollupitiya office on the pretext of meeting him. On suspicion the woman was taken to the nearby Police stations where she blew herself up and policemen.

Even Chandrika Kumaratunga, President of Sri lanka in her address to the Nation on 8 August after the killing of the Tamil Minister Lakshman Kadirgamar openly stated: “… our knowledge of their (LTTE’s) long held desire and repeated attempts to murder both my Tamil Cabinet Colleagues.”

According to intelligence sources LTTE has sent to Colombo two suicide cadres: Bavani from Puthukkudiyirupu, Mullaithievi and Rohini from Vaddukkoddai. Rohini is described as a handicap. She lost one leg earlier at an operation against the Sri Lanka armed forces. It is reliably learnt that they have already crept into Colombo and staying in Kesalwatte and their handler Dinesh in Colombo is waiting for the right time to instruct them to meet the EPDP leader either at the Party office or at the Ministry with the instruction to hug him or worship him in a Rajiv Gandhi style operation.
