ENDLF Rangappa gunned down in Colombo

[TamilNet, Thursday, 25 November 2004, 18:04 GMT]
A senior member of the ENDLF, a Sri Lankan paramilitary group based in India, was gunned down by unidentified gunmen in Dematagoda, an outer suburb of Colombo, Thursday evening, Police said. The slain man was identified as Mr. Sonnyboy Occerz alias 'Rangappa'. Police said that little is known about his activities in Sri Lanka. 'Rangappa' is from the small Dutch Burgher community in Batticaloa town.

He had been resident in Chennai, South India, for more than 18 years before coming to Colombo recently. His family lives in Chennai, according to Police investigating his killing.

Rangappa joined the People's Liberation Organisation of Thamil Eelam(PLOTE) in 1983. He retired from militancy after PLOTE split in 1986 to lead a private life. But later, when a splinter group of PLOTE formed the ENDLF, he joined it.
