Moneragala Tamil councilor shot dead

[TamilNet, Saturday, 29 March 2008, 14:18 GMT]
Unidentified men who arrived in a white van opened fire on the Deputy Chairman of the Moneragala Piratheasa Chapai (Pradeshiya Sabha), Annamalai Narayanan Mutthulingam, 61, an Up-Country Tamil representative around 6:00 p.m. Saturday, Police said. He succumbed to injuries at Moneragala hospital. A fellow Up-Country Tamil politician described the slaying as part of a prolonged and 'camouflaged campaign of communal violence' against Tamils.

Annamalai was a Registered Medical Practitioner (RMP), and was treating patients at his private medical centre in Main street, Moneragala at the time of the shooting.

Deputy Chairman Annamalai contested under UPFA ticket at the Piratheasa Chapai elections in 2006.
