Guard at Jaffna women's home stabbed to death

[TamilNet, Friday, 27 August 2010, 19:05 GMT]
An unidentified person who tried to sneak into a home for destitute and war-affected women in Maruthanaamadam - Uduvil area Thursday night stabbed to death the watcher of the home who tried to catch him, sources in Jaffna said. Uduvil is an area in Jaffna where Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers are always present and the intrusion into the women's home during Thursday night cannot have taken place without the knowledge of the soldiers, the resident of the area said.

The victim who died at the spot due to many stab wounds was identified as Laxmanan, 65.

The home for women 'Arulakam' is run by a Christian organization for abandoned and war-affected women.

This incident has caused fear among the persons in similar homes for women including the women hostel of Jaffna University in the area.
