Decomposed body recovered from Kelani river, girl abducted in Negombo

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 06 March 2007, 10:40 GMT]
Wellampitiya police recovered the body of a youth in decomposed state from Kelani river at Kohilawatte in Wellampitiya police division Monday, police said. Meanwhile, unknown persons abducted the five year old daughter of a popular Tamil businessman Monday evening in Negombo and have demanded ransom to release her, according to complaints made to Negombo police.

Police said that the Kelani victim may have been killed elsewhere and dumped later into the river, the police said.

The police brought the body to Colombo National Hospital to be identified.

The Kelani-river incident raises the spectre killings of Tamils in 1995 when tortured bodies of Tamils were found floating in waterways including Bolgoda lake in Colombo and the terror era of 1987, 1988 insurrections of Jathika Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) when many Sinhalese youths were killed and their bodies thrown in the Kelani river.
