Mr Kauroopan left the petrol station for lunch at 3 p.m. Sunday when he went missing.

His relatives have registered complaints with the Jaffna Human Rights Commission (HRC) that the Sri Lankan Army (SLA) troopers were responsible for his killing. Relatives told HRC members that Kauroopan was last seen being detained at the nearby Siruppiddy army sentry post that is located along the Point Road.

His relatives drew the attention of the HRC rights group that he was most to the blood found at the sentry.

Relatives told Human Rights Commission that Kauroopan had recently passed information to army higher officials on a recent incident of attempted rape of a young girl by SLA troopers, and that they believed that this was a revenge killing.

Jaffna's entire schools were shut down Monday as a protest for the attack on the vice principal, Jaffna sources said

Elseware in Jaffna, a youth riding a motorcycle along Kathirippai Road in Atchchuveli was shot dead by unknown gunmen at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday. The victim has not yet been identified.
