Paramilitary men arrested for alleged abduction, slaying of Thenmaraadchi woman

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 10 April 2012, 15:40 GMT]
Three persons including a Sri Lankan military operated Civil Defence Force (CDF) paramilitary person and an alleged EPDP man, have been detained by SL Police in Thenmaraadchi on suspicion of abduction, alleged rape and slaying of 28-year-old Atputhamalar Subramaniyam from Thanangki'lappu, who was reported missing since November 13 and later found dead near a Sri Lanka Army bund on 25 January 2012. Women rights groups in the peninsula have urged global watchdogs to follow the conduct of SL Police in the investigations on the detained suspects.

The key suspect is ‘Thokkaiyan’, an operative of CDF, a paramilitary group run by the SL military intelligence, sources close to the SL police said. Thokkaiyan is from the same village of the slain victim, but was residing in Meesaalai, the sources further said.

The second suspect is a man named Suresh. People of Thanangki'lappu allege that Suresh is a member of the EPDP although the group has not verified him as its member.

The third suspect, Shanmugam Jeyamohan, also belongs to an armed group, the sources said.

It is believed that the victim was lured outside her residence promising a bank loan, which she had been seeking for a while, the sources further said.

Recently, a former EPDP operative was behind the rape and killing of a school girl in Neduntheevu.
