Sri Lanka's Genocidal War - '95 to '01
"Following a Tiger assault on a police post on 25 April, the security forces shelled Eravur 5th Division village, seven miles north of Batticaloa town, killing S Selvi, 28, and S Rajeswary, 40. Ten other civilians were wounded. Eight houses and Eravur Veerapathirar Hindu temple were damaged. Local people say the police prevented them taking the injured immediately to the hospital.
In a letter to President Chandrika, Batticaloa MP Joseph Pararajasingham says, despite many written complaints to her, indiscriminate shelling of populated areas continues. According to reports, 75 civilians were killed and over 185 were injured in 1998 in security force attacks." (British Refugee Council publication, Sri Lanka Monitor - April 1999)
