Another youth shot dead in east

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 16 March 2005, 15:46 GMT]
A youth was shot by unidentified gunmen in Maruthamunai, a Muslim town 35 kilometres south of Batticaloa Wednesday evening around 5. 45. He was rushed to Batticaloa hospital but died soon after admission, Police said. The youth, identified as Mr. Thambirasah Jegan, 22, is from ‘Farm Colony’ in Mankerni, about 50 kilometres north of Batticaloa. He was riding a motorbike when he was shot, according to Police.

His girl friend, who was at his side when the youth was pronounced dead, told Police he had no links to the LTTE or any of the paramilitaries working with the Sri Lankan armed forces in Batticaloa.

Kalmunai Police, however, said the killing was clearly not a private matter.

They said the youth’s background is being further investigated. The killers got away, according to the Police.
