Sampur is an area southwards Trincomalle the stratagic natural harbour. This harbour was vulnarable due to the artilary and mortar attacks fired by the LTTE cadres. LTTE closed an irrigation anicut at Maviaru and chased Muslim people from the area to consolidate their military power and created a humanitarian issue. On this issue President Mahinda Rajapakse had to launch retaliatory attacks as national security was endangered.

LTTE has withdrawn from the area and it is under Sri Lanka security forces control.
