Bodies of two men, riddled with bullets and hands bound, were found Monday morning by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) and Special Task Force (STF) road patrol troopers in a paddy field along the Pillaiyarady Veethy (road) at Sathurukondan Thannamunai in the Batticlaoa police division, police sources said.

One of the dead bodies was identified as belonging to Christhoper Christin, 28, from Church Road in Thannamunai according to the identity card found in the clothes.

The body was found 100 m from Sathurukondan SLA camp.

The police suspect these two men may have been abducted on Sunday or earlier and shot to death before being dumped in the fields.

No one has claimed either the identified body or the other which are kept at the Batticaloa Teaching Hospital morgue.

Sathurukondan is located 4 km north of Batticaloa town.
