[TamilNet, Saturday, 08 July 2006, 09:54 GMT]
The body of a mason working in a housing development for tsunami victims was found with severe assault injuries in Polikandy, Vadamaradchy Saturday morning, civil society sources in Vadamaradchy said. Rasiah Muraleeswaran, 42, from Meesalai East was a resident mason at the Nilavan Kudiyiruppu Housing scheme funded by FORUT when he was killed. Another mason, Mr Rajani, 26, from Jaffna Islet of Punguduthivu, working on the same Housing Project, has mysteriously disappeared, according civil society sources.

Muraleeswaran was earlier working on housing projects administered by the Liberation Tigers, and then continued to carryout mason work, local residents who knew Muraleeswaran said.

No details on the whereabouts of Mr Rajani is known.

The Housing project is located inside a High Security Zone (HSZ) under 24-hour surveillance by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) troopers.

Polikandy is a littoral town located 2 km west of Point Pedro along Jaffna Peninsula's northern most coast.
