Armed robberies increase during curfew hours in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 04 October 2006, 00:58 GMT]
Seven armed masked men robbed more than Rs. 100,000 in cash, and jewellery worth many hundred thousands rupees Monday night from residents in five houses located in the Kachchery-Nallur road region inside Jaffna Municipality during the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) imposed 'dusk to dawn' curfew hours, sources in Jaffna said. During the same night unidentified gunmen beat to death a 75 year old woman at Elalai North located close to the High Security Zone (HSZ) before disappearing with valuables from her house.

The victim identified as Ms. Nadarasa Nesaratnam 75, a retired teacher, was alone at her house on Monday night when she was attacked.

The robbery and the killing took place after Magistrate Mr. R. C. Vignarajah wrote to the SLA High Command in Palaly asking explanation for the escalating violence and theft during curfew hours in Jaffna town, Vadamaradchchy and Thenmaradchchy in the past months.
