Auto-rickshaw driver shot dead in Karaveddy

[TamilNet, Sunday, 05 November 2006, 15:15 GMT]
An auto-rickshaw driver from Rajakiramam village in Karaveddy West, Vadamaradchy was shot dead by unknown gunmen Sunday morning, sources in Point Pedro said. This is the third killing involving youths from Rajakiramam travelling-in or owning auto-rickshaws in the last six months.

Ponnuchamy Ramesh, 30, from Mattakuliya in Colombo, married in the Rajakiramam, and has been driving auto-rickshaw for a living. He is a father of two children.

In May 2006, Sri Lanka Army soldiers, stationed in Navindil along Jaffna Point-pedro road, attacked with Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG) two three-wheelers with 7 youths from Rajakirmam, killing all of them on the spot.

Earlier, in April 2006, unidentified gunmen riding in a motorbike shot dead two owners of auto-rickshaws from Rajakiramam village, at the central bus stand in Nelliady, Vadamaradchy.
