Girl student disappears in Pungkudutheevu

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 16 October 2007, 02:48 GMT]
A 21-year-old girl student is reported missing after she left home Sunday to attend classes in a private educational institute after going through the Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) camp area on her way to the institute in Pungkudutheevu, an islet of Jaffna, according to complaints lodged by her family members with the Human Rights Commission (HRC) Jaffna, Monday.

The girl missing, Thulasika Pathmalingam, is a resident of Ward 3, Pungkudutheevu.

The disappearance has raised the spectre of rape and murder of a young wife of a Saiva temple priest, Sarathambal Saravanabavanantha Kurukal, 29, who was gang-raped and murdered near Kannakai Amman Temple in Pungkudutheevu in December 1999.

Pungudutheevu SLN camp gained notoriety after the incident as villagers accused the SLN soldiers for Sarathambal's rape and murder, the brutality of which shocked the entire Tamil community.
