[TamilNet, Friday, 30 September 2005, 09:28 GMT]
An unidentified gunman shot and killed Abdul Hakeem, the leader of a Muslim armed Group. The incident took place at Palainagar, Mutthur, around 7.50 p.m., Thursday. His body was found riddled with eight bullets, the Police said.

Abdul Samadhu Abdul Hakeem, alias Madukara Hakeem, 42, was alone on his way to his Halal stall on his motorbike when he was shot at. His usual team of six bodyguards were not with him when he was gunned down.

The incident took place on Muthur Main Road 500 meters east of Sri Lanka Army base in Kaddaiparichan.

A section of public and police said that the reason behind the murder was due to business rivalry and infighting. Police has launched an immediate investigation into the killing.

The Jihadi leader was allegedly involved in Tamil - Muslim clashes that took place between years 1985 and 1995 and later in 2002.

Abdul Hakeem was a father of 7 children and was in control of the meat businesses in Muthur, sources added.
