The inquiry into the killing of two Tamil youths in Valvettithurai (VVT) during Heroes Day celebrations commenced before the Point Pedro Magistrate Mr.K.Ariyanayagam Wednesday, legal sources said. VVT Police led the evidence of two eyewitnesses to the incident where unidentified gunmen came in a motorbike and fired into a group of men playing soccer in VVT Chidambara College grounds killing two youths.

VVT Police submitted to court that the two eyewitnesses did not make statements to the Police regarding the incident during the police investigation. The Magistrate directed the two witnesses to make statements to the Police corroborating the statements made in the court Wednesday, legal sources said.

The magistrate further ordered the authorities to submit to court the medical certificate of injured Mr.Ponnuthurai Theivendran who is now being treated in the Palaly military hospital under heavy security and also the autopsy reports of the two victims, legal sources said.

The Magistrate put off further inquiry for December 22, court sources said.
