IlamparithyHe questioned how armed men carrying weapons could move about in an area where SLA soldiers are conducting street patrolling frequently.

"It's a premeditated killing. How can the killers escape from the notice of the SLA soldiers located in the area within one hundred meters from the scene of crime", he asked.

Immediate action should be taken to stop killing of innocent Tamils. Persons responsible for the Friday's killings should be brought before justice. Hopes of Tamil people who are yearning for permanent peace and justice have been shattered with such killings.
