Allaipitti man shot by SLN, dies without medical help

[TamilNet, Monday, 01 May 2006, 11:49 GMT]
Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) soldiers Allaipitti area in Kayts within High Security Zone (HSZ) shot and killed a 74-year old civilian in his home at 8 p.m. Sunday, sources in Jaffna said.

Rasamany Sangarapillai was with his wife when the SLN soldiers in civil clothes entered the house, asked him to lie face down. They then shot him at close range. His wife was also injured in the gun fire as she tried to prevent the soldiers from firing.

The SLN manning the checkpoint in Allaipitti junction refused permission to the relatives of Rasamany to be taken to Jaffna Hospital. He passed away without any medical help Sunday night, relatives said.

Kayts police removed his body and transported it to Jaffna Teaching Hospital Monday morning for postmortem examinations, hospital sources said.

The incident follows the claymore attack on SLN foot patrol Sunday when two SLN soldiers were injured.
