His body was taken to Akkaraipattu hospital and has been given to his relatives after postmortem examinations, hospital sources said.

Alaiyadi Vembu Pradeshiya sabha member and Amparai district organizer for EPDP, Reveendran Kamalan said that Sutharan had worked in the political section of the EPDP, that Sutharsan worked hard for his party during the election periods, and that Liberation Tigers were responsible for Sutharsan's death.
