Grenade lobbed into Sudaroli office at Wellawatte
By Asif Fuard
A grenade was lobbed at a Tamil daily newspaper advertising office at Wellawatte, but no damage was caused as it went unexploded, Police said.
The grenade was lobbed by two unidentified persons who had knocked at the door of the Sudaroli office on the top floor of a building, police said.

The double pinned grenade did not explode as only one pin of the grenade had been removed and detectives said it was probably meant more as a threat.
The Bomb Squad later defused the grenade.

E. Saravanabavan, managing Director of Sudaroli and its sister paper, the Jaffna-based Udayan, said they had got threatening calls from several political groups opposed to their policies.
