Sinnarasa Rasaiah, 47, from Vinayaga Mudaliyar (VM) Road in Point Pedro town, and owner of a bakery, was shot and killed at 3.30 p.m. Sunday by unknown gunmen who forced entry into the bakery located within 100 meters of the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) 52-4 Brigade Head Quarters within the High Security Zone (HSZ) encompassing the Point-Pedro harbour, sources said. Residents allege that Rasaiah was a military informant.

Point Pedro Police has taken the body to the Point Pedro General Hospital in Manthikai for post-mortem examinations.

The brazen killing within the HSZ, the third murder to take place in the last two days, has shocked the residents of the town. Tension prevails in Point Pedro town and suburbs.
