Mystery death of Batticaloa man in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 05 August 2003, 17:48 GMT]
Mr. Sinnathamby Thambipillai, 38, of Batticaloa, was found dead with head injuries inside a jewelry shop in Kasthuriyar Street in Jaffna town on Sunday night, and he was the third person to die in a jewelry shop in Jaffna mysteriously, Police sources in Jaffna said.

The body of Mr. Thambipillai was lying in the mortuary of the Jaffna Teaching Hospital, as there was no judicial medical officer to conduct autopsy to find the cause of death, medical sources said.

When the matter was mentioned at the Jaffna Magistrate’s Court Tuesday, the parties concerned raised suspicion over the death of Thambipillai and wanted a postmortem held on the body to find the cause of death, legal sources said.

The Jaffna hospital authorities thereafter wanted the court to send the body for postmortem examination before the Galle Judicial medical Officer, legal sources said.

Now the Police have taken steps to transfer the body from Jaffna to Galle for postmortem examination, legal sources said.
