[b]Colombo, 01 May ([/b] Following Karuna Group Special Commander Pillaiyan’s exposure in the March 23 Asian Tribune of the Norwegian blue print for a Tiger offensive in Trincomalee, further light has been thrown on the Wanni conspiracy to gain total control over the Eastern port town.

A pattern of events in Trinco since the middle of last year reflects the Tiger mentality since the CFA was signed. The Tiger strategy of turning Trincomalee into an ethnic trap for the government seems to have achieved some success at least temporarily. A key figure in this plot – it is now revealed - was the late V. Vigneshwaran, the bank employee who was gunned down on April 7. He had been entrusted with the task of destroying the image of Tamil political stalwarts such as Sambandan who had wielded strong influence in the Eastern Province, since the days of the late TULF Leader A. Amirthalingam.
