A speeding Sri Lankan military water bowser in Kiraan knocked down three children on Wednesday. 14-year-old Chinna Kannan, 12-year-old Janithan and 11-year-old Kousalyan were rushed to Chanthi-ve’li hospital and transferred to Batticaloa Teaching Hospital for further treatment, medical sources in Batticaloa said.
The SL police in Ea’raavoor was quick to claim that a ‘preliminary investigation’ had revealed that the children were running across the road causing the ‘accident’.
Kiraan is located 28 km north of Batticaloa.
