Fourteen pressure mines, 21 bombs, one RPG launcher and four mortar ammunitions were unearthed by the police in the Illuppukadawai police division in Mannar this afternoon.

Police said the haul of ammunition was found in a deserted cesspit behind the Agrarian Services Department in Illuppukadawai on a tip off received by the Illuppukadawai Police Post.

They said the bombs were disposed by the army following the magisterial inquiry, which was conducted by the Mannar Magistrate.

A suicide kit, four claymore mines, three parcels of C4 explosives and ammunition were also found in a house in Vallakulam, Chavakachcheri this morning on information received by the Jaffna police. (Ajith Siriwardana)

    Should think twice in withdrawing forces from previous conflict areas and also on Indian aided Airport expansion plans,

    In the name of so called reconciliation, this dud government has given a second change to the Tamil terrorists to thrive on the back of diaspora money. 27,000 of our boys gave their lives to restore peace in SL and this spineless lot has taken that away in a flash! Enjoy yapahaalana thing people!

    Please tell us if this is current material or old stuff by 6 years and left over from LTTE of years ago.

    Kolla Thursday, 31 March 2016 06:30 AM

    LTTE is not tamil terrorists and these old weapons are being scavenged so they can be sold or smuggled to foreign terrorists

    Shanil Thursday, 31 March 2016 04:38 PM

    Zero casualties? You really swallow that BS? Wow. You must be living in a dream world if you think there's such a thing as war with "zero casualties". Wake up.

    Lal Thursday, 31 March 2016 06:31 AM

    Some people in the north scavenging and selling of LTTE weapons isn't a threat

    Before long country will be finished

    You don't believe in equality, simple as that. And any underworld activity also will be stereotyped as 'Tamil' and terrorism. Plus you don't believe that an ethnic issue existed that requires reconciliation. Shame on you.

    SAM Friday, 01 April 2016 05:44 PM

    What political, this is the truth. Should tight security and have search operations again.

    angara Thursday, 31 March 2016 07:32 AM

    they withdraw forces from those areas and now LTTE is rising via DM Android App

    Mandy Thursday, 31 March 2016 08:07 AM

    Regret comments. How does one know if these are old caches of LTTE stuff left over 6 years. Do not blame yahapalanaya but commend it for discovering them.

    Jagath Leanage Thursday, 31 March 2016 08:09 AM

    All of a sudden, ammunitions are coming out like mushrooms.

    The solution - Relese more LTTTE terorists from the jails

    Jamis Thursday, 31 March 2016 08:21 AM

    Once in a while they must find the lost gold also hidden here and there.

    Kapil Thursday, 31 March 2016 08:27 AM

    There can be many stories behind a scene. this is one side of the story. political drama

    We must appreciate the Tamil people , for giving correct information to police. It a good move but .GL gives to media.
