Moothoor villagers demand their security ensured after teacher murder

[TamilNet, Friday, 25 November 2011, 16:27 GMT]
Students, teachers, education officials and members of public in large numbers went in a procession Friday morning from Cheanaiyoor Central College to Champoor Police Station in the Moothoor East in Trincomalee district demanding that the culprits behind the brutal killing of a young unmarried Tamil teacher Miss Kurukulasingham Srivathani that took place on Thursday should be arrested. Srivathani left home Wednesday as usual in her scooter to Paaddaa'li-puram Government Tamil Mixed School in the Moothoor education zone, about seven km away from her place Cheanaiyoor-Kaddaipa'richchaan, which is located between two Sri Lanka Army camps, one at Paaddaa'li-puram and the other at Chanthosa-puram. Moothoor East, previously a part of the de facto Tamil Eelam administration by the LTTE is now fully occupied by the SL military.

A delegation of the civil groups at the conclusion of the procession met the Officer-in-Charge of the Champoor Police Station and put forward a demand to ensure the security of teachers and students and public in the Moothoor East.
