Batticaloa burial planned for slain journalist

[TamilNet, Friday, 29 April 2005, 12:48 GMT]
Sivaram's body will be buried according to Sivaram's wishes in Batticaloa, at the family burial grounds where his parents' bodies lie in rest, a relative organizing the funeral arrangements said. Viewing is to be held in Colombo at Sivaram's residence in Ratmalana and the body is to be taken to Batticaloa Sunday for Monday's funeral,

Mr Sivaram's siblings, Dr Sooriyakumar, a gynecologist, domiciled in UK, and Dr Seshakumar who is a medical practitioner in Australia are expected to arrive in time for the funeral.

Mr Sivaram, lost his nephew, Mr Seshadri, a son of his sister Sooriyakumari, in the recent tsunami. Sivaram shortened his visit to the United States to attend to his cousin's disappearance in December last year. The death of Seshadri devastated Sivaram, family members said.

TamilNet plans to open a Sivaram Memorial fund to assist Sivaram's family.
