The body of a youth recovered from the no-man zone in Muhamalai with gunshot wounds on Wednesday 14 June was identified as belonging to a 16 year-old youth from Point-Pedro by the youth's mother at the Jaffna Teaching Hospital mortuary Saturday, hospital sources in Jaffna said.
Sri Ravindrarajah Thineswaran disappeared from his Point-Pedro home two weeks earlier and complaints about his disappearance were filed with the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) and the Jaffna Human Rights Commission by his mother, civil society sources said.
The body was handed over to the mother as directed by the Jaffna courts, legal sources said.
