Head of Jaffna district PLOTE group, Sebastian Iruthayarajan (alias Bolder Rajan), 43, was shot dead along Martin Street, Jaffna by unknown gunmen Wednesday afternoon, sources in Jaffna said. Iruthayarajan was riding a bicycle towards the Girls' Convent located in Martin Street to pickup his school aged children when he was shot, witnesses to the shooting said.

The gunmen followed Mr Iruthayarajan shot him at close range and escaped, sources said. His body is still lying in the middle of Martin Street, according to sources.

Iruthayarajan is a father of nine children.

A senior member of People Liberation Organization of Tamil Eelam (PLOTE) for several years, Iruthayarajan was an honorary member of the last Jaffna Municipal Council under the leadership of Mr Sellan Kandaiyan, and resigned from his post with the other members after the controversial reign of the Council administration.
