Girl slain with Isaipiriya in SL military captivity identified

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 20 May 2014, 04:56 GMT]
A girl seen held captive together with LTTE journalist Shoba (Isaippiriyaa) by the genocidal military of Sri Lanka and later seen slain, has been identified as 19-year-old Ushalini Gunalingam from Yoakapuram, Mallaavi in Vanni, news sources in Ki’linochchi told TamilNet Monday. The girl was not a LTTE fighter, although she had been recruited by the movement in 2008 for a few months, according to the relatives of the victim.

Ushalini had left the movement and was with the family. But, the family had lost her during a chaotic displacement in the beginning of May 2009.

The parents, searching for their lost daughter, have been complaining to all the commissions, from the LLRC to the recent presidential commission, without any outcome.

Now the photos released in public domain on the Internet had reached the family establishing the fate of the missing girl.

The 53 Division of Sri Lanka Army reportedly captured Isaipiriya. The SL Defence Ministry had earlier claimed that the 53 Division had killed Isaipiriya at battlefront.

Isaipiriya was a media worker and she was not a combatant.

The killings of the two are part of a large-scale massacre committed with genocidal intent.
