WFP distributed 'high protein-nutrition biscuit' found with slain
Troops of the 55 Division while conducting search and
clearing operations in general area South of Chalai, after neutralizing
an LTTE infiltration bid into the military defences Sunday(March 8),
made a startling revelation of a possible flow of 'combat rations' to
LTTE under the guise of 'nutrition supplements'.
According to ground sources, a high protein BP-100
biscuit packet was in the possession of a slain LTTE cadre who was
killed due to military small arms fire. Troops have also uncovered a
T-56 assault riffle, 03x maps and a GPS, security sources said.
Earlier, on 26th January, 2008, police personnel
manning a check point at Medawachchiya apprehended a Vavuniya bound
lorry with a stock of 39,000kgs of 'BP-100 compact Therapeutical high
protein biscuit' sent by the World Food Program(WFP).
