Mother, daughter killed during ambush

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 29 September 1999, 14:08 GMT]
Three people, including a mother and her 14 year old daughter were killed yesterday in the coastal fishing hamlet of Kaluwankerni, about 20 km north east of Batticaloa when the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers and cadres from the Razeek group, a paramilitary organisation operating alongside the SLA, opened fire said sources.

Sources said troops waiting in ambush had observed a youth and fired at him last night around 9.30 p.m. The youth, known as Thevan, had ran towards a nearby hut to escape firing.

The soldiers chased the youth, shot and killed him.

The mother, A.Yogeswary, 34 and her daughter, V.Nageswaray,14, who were in the hut were hit by the firing and died on the spot.

The SLA claimed the youth was a member of the Liberation Tigers and handed over his body at the Eravur hospital.

Unconfirmed reports, however, said the youth was a civilian from Kaluwankerni.

The bodies of Yogeswary and her daughter were handed over to the hospital by the Divisional Secretary.
