Prabhakaran trying to evade advancing forces

The LTTE leader had made a call through his satellite phone to Kumar Padmanathan alias ‘KP’ and asked him to take care of Prabhakaran’s wife and the children.

LTTE leader V. Prabhakaran is said to be guarded by some 50 hardcore Black Tigers, some of whom are said to be relatives of his wife Madivadani. He is reported to be changing bunkers and is now directly commanding the battle, with Bhanu, Jeyam, Theepan and Vidusha commanding the frontline, while Sea Tiger Leader Soosai has been deployed along the coast.

Well informed sources from Thailand revealed that the LTTE leader had made a call through his satellite phone to Kumar Padmanathan alias ‘KP’ and asked him to take care of Prabhakaran’s wife and the children. At the same time he has reportedly asked KP to lobby the international community to stop the war. Thereafter KP has had conversations with LTTE representatives in India, the USA, UK and the European Union.

When the LTTE mounted a counterattack in Mullaithivu, the target had been the 59 Division’s commandos. After foiling their attempt, the commandos said that the infiltrating LTTE cadres didn’t have enough supplies of arms and ammunition and their food too could not sustain a long stay in hiding.
