Tiger impostors caught

[TamilNet, Saturday, 18 April 1998, 23:59 GMT]
Two young men, Navarathinam Jeevarathinam and Thangarasa Ravichandran, who had attempted to rob households in the village of Punnaichcholai on the outskirts of the Batticaloa town last night masquerading as Liberation Tigers were caught by some vigilant youths of the area and were handed over to the Sri Lankan Police.

Both men were found to be from the nearby village of Oorani.

The Police in Batticaloa arrested three more suspects this morning following information revealed by arrested persons.

The two men had gone into Punnaicholai armed with toy guns and had told residents to switch off the lights in their houses saying that they were Liberation Tigers.

However, people having become suspicious of their behaviour and of their guns, had cornered them and had trussed up the two impostors who were later handed over to the Sri Lankan Police post at Maamangam which is close to Punnaicholai.
