With the latest key battlefield successes, the security forces have scored some unforeseen bonuses as well, by way of a sudden spike in desertions from Tiger ranks. It appears that Tiger cadres, who, hitherto fought bravely, have finally begun to see the futility of further sacrifices at the behest of the megalomaniac leading them, and, at least, one group of their deserters have fled to India this week, while engaged in evacuating the wounded from Nachchikudah by sea. According to intelligence, the desertions include a group of about 30 Sea Tigers. There have also been reports of a group of deserters exchanging gunfire with some of the cadres sent to apprehend them.
