2 family men shot dead in Valaichenai

[TamilNet, Monday, 05 March 2007, 08:21 GMT]
Unidentified armed men took two family men from their house for interrogation and shot both dead at some distance away from the house at Kendayankerny in Karuvakerny in Valaichenai police division in Batticaloa Sunday around 8:45 p.m, Valaichenai police said.

The victims are Thambyaiyah Mohan, 44, auto rickshaw driver and a father of two children and Kurukulasingam Srikumaran, 30, a mason by profession and a father of a six months child.

Both are cousins and they were at Mohan's house when the armed men took them away saying they have to be interrogated and gun shots were heard after some time, the wives of the victims said.

Srikumaran, from Kallaru in Batticaloa, had been living at Eechilampathai in Trincomalee district after his love marriage there. He and his family being displaced to Vaharai had again moved to Kendayankerny because of the recent Sri Lanka Army offensive. He was living with his relatives with his wife and child.

Valaichenai police recovered the bodies Monday morning and handed them to Valaichenai Hospital for inquest into death to be held.

Valaichenai is located 27 km north of Batticaloa.
