[TamilNet, Sunday, 28 January 2007, 21:46 GMT]
Residents of Chankanai found the body of a youth, with hands and legs bound, and with severe bodily injuries, dumped in a derelict well in an abandoned plot of land near Murugamoorthy Temple at Chankanai in Valigamam west.

The body of the youth, estimated to be around late 20s, clad in denim jeans, was not recovered until Sunday evening.

Recently in a similar incident, a body was seen dumped in a well at Chulipuram in the High Security Zone of the Sri Lanka Army (SLA), but had disappeared later.

Instances of dead bodies of abducted youths being dumped during curfew hours in the nights have increased at an alarming rate in the Jaffna peninsula.
