Fifth death anniversary of Mr.Mylvaganam Nimalarajan a BBC reporter in Jaffna who was shot dead by suspected members of a Tamil para-military group on October 19, 2000 was commemorated in an event held at the Offices of the International Students Union located in Nallur Jaffna. Journalist Thavachelvan presided the event.

Memorial lectures were given by President of Jaffna Students Consortium K Gunenthiran, Secretary of Jaffna Journalists Union, P thayaparan, Editor of Jaffna daily Valampuri, Mr Sivasundaram and President of Jaffna Technical College Student Union, N Suganthan.

Mr. Nimalarajan was gunned down on October 19, 2000, at his home located in the Sri Lanka Armyâs High Security Zone in Jaffna.

Though five years have passed by since his murder, the assassins are yet to be captured. The murder case is stuck in the courts in Sri Lanka without any progress as there appears to be no firm will on the part of the Sri Lankan government and its security establishment to apprehend and prosecute the alleged assassins from the EPDP, human rights activists say.
