Last week an LTTE suicide bomber tried to drive an explosive filled truck into army's main camp in Chenkaladi,Batticaloa district. Luckily, army personnel on guard were able to change the direction of the truck, therefore averting a great disaster. However four army soldiers and 8 civilians were killed when the suicide bomber blew up the truck after it crashed.
Primary investigations on the wreckage has revealed a startling fact; the suicide bomber who drove the truck into the army camp was disabled. Forensics analysis has proved that suicide cadre who carried out the bombing had one leg missing.
Apparently the above mentioned suicide bomber was an LTTE cadre who was wounded in a previous battle. A handicapped LTTE cadre is yet another burden for the LTTE. At one point during the Jayasikuru operation, LTTE leader Prabhakaran ordered more than 50 of wounded LTTE cadres to be shot in order to save resources for other fighters.
