Woman shot dead in Vadamaradchchi

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 23 August 2006, 12:11 GMT]
Unidentified armed men shot dead a forty year old woman Manoharan Rajini, mother of four children Tuesday morning around 7.30 a.m. in front of the welfare centre at Sakkotai in Vadamaradchchi division in Jaffna district where she had been residing on being displaced from Palaly which is located in the high security zone.

Soldiers of the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) within fifteen minutes of the crime arrested a 22 year-old youth Annalingam Ajanthan at Kumudhini in Alvai alleging that he was involved in the shooting incident.

But parents of the Tamil youth have appealed to the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL) in Jaffna district that Annalingam Ajanthan, an innocent has been arrested by the SLA to falsely implicate him with the killing.

Residents of the area said that the woman could have been shot dead as she was suspected to be an informant to Sri Lanka forces.
