Tamileelam police officer Jeevanantham, Mr. Pasupathy of the Political wing if Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and Mr. Perambalam the father of two martyrs, lit the Common flame.

Mr. Daniel, the Administrative Chief of the Tamil Eelam Museum cut the ribbon and declared open the monument.

The Deputy Political Head of the LTTE Mr. S. Thangan hoisted the Tamil Eelam national flag and Administrative head of the Martyrs Office lit the flame of sacrifice.

Ms. Poovili, the Kilnochchi district political head of the LTTE garlanded the monument while S. Thangan unveiled the inscription plaque.

The event attended by students, teachers, staff of government and civil organisations, LTTE officials and members and public, concluded with the speech delivered by Ms. Poovili.
