A youth working as a nightwatchman at the Chavakachcheri Government Hospital was shot dead by two unknown gunmen Thursday 11:00 p.m., sources in Chavakachcheri said. Armed men allegedly scaled the hospital walls to get near the victim, sources added. The youth was taken to Jaffna Teaching Hospital with serious gunshot injuries and died on the way to the hospital, hospital sources said.

The victim, identified as Ranjan, 23, from Point Pedro is a student at the Jaffna University, according to his relatives.

Relatives said Ranjan during his vacation days helps his uncle who has a permanent watcher position at the hospital.

Adminstrators at the Jaffna Campus confirmed Thursday that Ranjan was a final year student specializing in Hindu Civilization.

Relatives said Ranjan was originally from Eluthumadduval and he was staying in Point Pedro after being displaced from his native town.
