[TamilNet, Wednesday, 01 December 2010, 12:53 GMT]
One of the women victims, stripped naked, hands tied behind back, and shot dead, as seen in the video footage that has recently reached Channel-4 has been identified as 27-year-old Shoba, with nom de plume Isaippiriyaa, who worked as media specialist with the LTTE, according to the TamilNet Vanni correspondent who recently reached a free country in the West. “I am able to learn through those who have been at Mu'l'livaaykkaal in the final days of war, that Shoba remained unarmed and did not take part in combat," the Vanni correspondent told TamilNet, adding that Shoba lost her 6-month-old baby girl, named Akal, in the last stage of the war. TamilNet refrains from publishing the cruel video, but instead publishes a video footage of Isaippiriya as a reporter from LTTE's O'liveechchu video magazine.

Meanwhile, siblings of Shoba living outside the Sri Lanka have also confirmed her identity, and can be approached to obtain details of Shoba, informed sources told TamilNet.

Isaippiriya was born in 1982, was educated in the Memorial School until Grade 5. She obtained a scholarship to continue her education in Veampadi Girls High School in Jaffna until 1996.

With her family displaced by war to Vanni, Isaippiriya continued her studies in Vanni till she joined the movement’s media division.

Isaippiriya is a gifted dancer, and married sometime in 2007 or 2008.

In the 5:25 minute video released by Channel-4, Isaippiriya’s naked body with hands tied behind the back is seen from 4:13 to 4:46 minutes, and further between 5:03 and 5:25 minutes of the tape.

Another woman victim stripped naked, shot dead and hands tied behind back, is seen between 3:08 and 4:10 minutes of the tape.
