SLA removes remains of bodies, accuse Mulli residents

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 20 March 2007, 17:33 GMT]
A search organised by Point Pedro Magistrate Mr. K. Ariyanayagam and the police Tuesday evening, for the two partly burnt corpses discovered by Mulli residents in a mangrove shrub jungle Monday, ended in failure, sources in Jaffna said. Military boot tracks on the marshy ground were found in the area and residents allege that the burnt corpses have been removed Monday night by the troopers who the villagers accuse of dumping the body there.

Regular presence of Sri Lanka Army (SLA) troopers in the area is common during the last several months, Mulli residents said.

Villagers of Mulli in Varani discovered two corpses in partly burnt state dumped in a mangrove shrub land located along Kodikamam-Point Pedro road between Thenmaradchy and Vadamaradchi Monday.

Mulli, located at the gate way to the main Sri Lanka Army territory at Vadamaradchy, is close to Manthuvil where 8 youths went missing, allegedly killed by the SLA soldiers, according to the villagers.

The Manthuvil victims bodies were never found.
