The bodies of two Muslim youth with gun shot wounds were found by the road in Eravur town Thursday morning, Police sources in the eastern Muslim town said. The two boys, Mohammed Irsaath, 17 and Mohammed Niyaz, 20 were shot dead while on their way to visit relatives in Mich Nagarm, a suburb of Eravur town around 8.30 p.m. Wednesday night. The boys’ relatives claimed that the Police killed them. Mohammed Irsaath is a GCE Advanced Level student at the Eravur Aligar National School.
Police sources in the Muslim town said that the two youth were working for the Liberation Tigers.
The youth’s relatives however, charged that the Police had issued an anonymous leaflet last month, saying that the two were traitors. The leaflet was aimed at incriminating them and eventually killing them, they alleged.
