[TamilNet, Thursday, 25 March 2010, 10:55 GMT]
The gang of Sinhalese army soldiers and hooligans who demolished Monday night the memorial pillar erected in memory of Thileepan in Nalloor took the remnants of demolished memorial pillar and the remaining structures Tuesday night in vehicles and dumped them in Jaffna Municipal Council garbage dumping ground in Nalloor, sources in Jaffna said. People of Jaffna already grieved and enraged by the defilement fear similar fate befalling the memorials of Tamil personalities in the peninsula, the sources added.

The JMC garbage dumping ground in Nalloor is located around 300 m from the place where Thileepan memorial pillar had stood behind the historically famous Nalloor Kandasuvami temple.

Thileepan, LTTE's political wing leader for the Jaffna district, soon after the signing of the Indo-Sri Lankan agreement in 1987, fasted unto death in a twelve day campaign after putting forward five demands to the Indian government to meet the aspirations of the Tamil people.

Lt. Col. Thileepan began his fasting on 15 September 1987 in front of the Nalloor Kandasuvami temple placing five demands to the Indian government but died as India failed to meet the demands, on September 26, 1987.
