Muslim trader shot dead by Sinhala rivals in Puththa'lam

[TamilNet, Friday, 19 October 2012, 20:15 GMT]
A dealer of gemstones and sea cucumbers was shot and killed Friday noon on Colombo - Puththa'lam Road, 5 km south of Puththa'lam town, while he was on his way to Jummah prayer to the mosque at Naakavil. The victim was identified as Puhari Nafar, a father of three, who had displaced from Mannaar to Puththa'lam in 1990. Sinhala dealers in dispute with Mr Nafar have allegedly hired an armed squad to kill him, the relatives of the victim blamed while the SL police maintained that they had no clue of who the killers could be.

The armed squad in a van followed Mr Nafar, who was riding a motorbike around 12:45 p.m.

The killers intercepted his motorbike and separated the victim from his friend before killing him.
