Ponniah Selvanayagam Kajeeban alias Gobi, a former LTTE intelligence cadre, was among the three LTTE leaders who were shot dead by the Army during a clash at Vedivachchikallu in Nedunkerni, Welioya, the Army said.

The shootout occurred when a group of soldiers encircled a house in Nadunkerni on a tip off that the suspects were staying there.

“The three suspects were identified as Gobi,Appan, and Thevian. Judicial inquiry is being held at the scene of the shooting,” Army spokesman Ruwan Wanigasooriya said.

“The detectives recovered arms, ammunition, explosives and other material from the hideout,” he said.

    Making a big announcement of another resurgence by the LTTE is nothing but a ploy on the part of the government. The government is just playing on the minds of the gullible masses while at the same time searching for sympathy from the international community.

    Thank you for your sensible comment, Are our people as blind as these stupid comments tell me? This govt has done us wonders in quelling the most vile terrorist group but we constantly criticise it and don't give them credit for bringing peace. No govt is perfect but at least acknowledge that we have had 5 years of peace, if nothing else. Never relax, should be our motto.

    A mission well executed. The general public is now more vigilant than ever before.

    Great, Just keep reminding people about LTTE, otherwise they will forget them. As long as they have that fear they will always vote for you.

    I love my Country Saturday, 12 April 2014 08:45 AM

    We are not ready go back to 30 years of war. We suffered enough. Now that we know how to tackle terrorism, we will not take 30 years to stop it. 3 days or 3 weeks or tops 3 months to finish off. All citizens from all ethnic group need to live a peaceful life in Sri Lanka from now on, thus there is no room for terrorist to sabotage the gradual reconciliation taking place in our Land.

    Ahamed Saturday, 12 April 2014 12:25 PM

    Fantastic. Must not let anything or anyone disrupt the hard fought peace that this country is now reaping the benefits of regardless of what the western pundits say. Keep the pressure. Find and eliminate!

    What a great Job by our Valiant soldier.
    Gobi the terrorist looks more like a Starving Beggar or a Nattami n the Manning market than a Liberation fighter. Good Job Sri Lanka Army. Keep it up.

    Thank you, army personnel, for your timely action and nipping the menace in the bud. These very same guys who posted adverse comments above will blame you and the govt. later if things get out of control and put our country in chaos again.

    VTpillai Friday, 11 April 2014 02:45 PM

    SL Army did a very good job. Sooner these guys are sent to their heaven, it is easier for the rest of us to live in peace here Sri Lanka

    Why dont the diaspora who finance these LTTE terror operations carve out Eelaam in Norway, or Canada, or UK or USA. All those countries have enough land. LTTE diaspora need to send Emmanuel & Adele Balasingham to start recruting child soldiers in those countries and start the insurrection in those places..

    Ya right....empty stomach commenting online......

    dan Friday, 11 April 2014 02:51 PM

    Scores of highly irresponsible comments could damage the morale of our valiant forces who sacrificed their limbs and lives for the sake of peace for all of us, but not to establish a separate state... For 05 years we enjoyed everything, night clubs, musical shows, carnivals, parties, night races etcetera. We sent our children to school without thinking of bombs, husbands, wives, parents and siblings have no fear today thanks to prevailing peace... Please...be more responsible, do not try to play with fire that could destroy our whole society once again....
