Unidentified assailants shot and killed two farmers at a tea shop close to Athiyar Hindu College in Neerveli at 8 p.m. Thursday. A youth who was standing inside the tea shop was seriously wounded and was rushed to Jaffna Hospital, civilian sources said. Tension prevails in the area. The Tamil National Vigilance Association has called for a hartal in Jaffna on Friday to protest against the killings.

The victims, Mr. Kunaratnam Krishnakumar, 34 and Mr. Sinnaiah Sivakaran, 24, had parked their Land Master tractor in front of the tea shop. Mr. K. Rooban, 24, the youth wounded in the incident had gone inside the tea shop.

Villagers living close to the shop alleged that the kiillngs were carried out by intelligence operatives working with the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) and said they heard the a sound of speeding three-wheeler after the gun shots were heard.

The farmers killed on Thursday were also involved in decorating the streets in Neerveli during the Martyrs remembrance week, residents added.

A youth involved in Heroes day decorations was shot at the same spot last week.
