Four civilians and three policemen were injured on Friday, 29 February 2008 as a Police attempt to arrest a suspected LTTE cadre in Modera ended with the LTTE suicide cadre blowing himself inside his room, Police and Military. The LTTE cadre who blew himself up has been identified as Nadarajah Sherma Vijayatharan alias Vijayan, 28, from Punkuduthivu, Jaffna. A spokesman for Modera Police told the Daily News that the Police team went to Vijayatharan’s lodge on a tip-off given by another suspect arrested in Modera on Thursday. The lodge at Aluth Mawatha, Ibbanwala Watta, Modera was cordoned off by Police around 6 a.m. yesterday and the suspect had blown himself inside the room as he felt there was no escape. The injured were admitted to Colombo National Hospital. A Policewoman was in a serious condition when admitted to hospital. Body parts of the Tiger cadre was strewn inside the room after the blast that damaged adjoining buildings. “He had exploded a claymore mine inside the room. This is evident from the number of iron balls which hit the walls,” the spokesman added.
Investigations are on to ascertain whether the LTTE suspect had used a suicide jacket. According to investigations, Vijayatharan had been living in Modera for several years along with his sister and brother-in-law. His brother-in-law had rented this house three years ago. His sister and brother-in-law had gone to Vavuniya three days ago and were not at home at the time of this incident, Police said. Police in a subsequent search inside the house recovered two micro pistols, one 9mm pistol and another fitted with silencer along with 138 ammunition used for these pistols and two cyanide capsules.
“The suicide and the recovery of cyanide capsules confirm that he was a hardcore Tiger cadre engaged in a dangerous mission in Colombo,” he added.
Enough is Enough - It is now clear to everyone that all these terrorist activities are being planned and executed by the LTTE Tamil Tiger terrorists living in lodges in Colombo. Therefore, the Sri Lanka Govt should take immediate actions to inspect all these lodges in Colombo and arrest suspected LTTE Tamil Tiger Terrorists.

What is really happening in Sri Lanka today is that a blood thirsty racist group led by some misled Tamils called LTTE is terrorizing against the Government of Sri Lanka and its people irrespective of their ethnicity with an intention of carving out a separate state. There is no conflict as such between Sinhalese and Tamil communities in Sri Lanka. In fact, the majority of the Tamil community lives in peace and harmony among the Sinhalese population through out the country apart from the Northern part of Sri Lanka. The entire Sinhalese and the Muslims population who lived in the Northern area for centuries were either killed or chased away completely by the LTTE Tamil Tiger terrorists. At the moment, not a single Sinhalese or Muslim is living in Jaffna, but, many thousands of Tamils are living in Colombo in peace with the other communities. Based on 2001 census, the Tamil population in Colombo district is 12.1% (see 2001 census). So, who is discriminated ? Tamils or Sinhalese? Do you need more evidence ?
