SLA soldier arrested on Farm school killings

[TamilNet, Friday, 24 November 2006, 15:23 GMT]
Police Officers from Criminal Investigation Department (CID) arrested a Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldier Friday on suspicion of involvement in the killing of five students of School of Agriculture in Thandikulam, Vavuniya last Saturday and detained him. The soldier, together with the police officer arrested earlier on Wednesday for alleged involvement in the massacre, are to be produced before Vavuniya district judge Mr Manickavasagar, Ilancheliyan on 5 December for an identification parade.

Meanwhile, 24 D-56 type Guns confiscated by CID officials from police and the army in Thirunavatkulam, spent bullets recovered from the crime scene, and shrapnel removed from the dead and injured students, were produced before Mr.Ilancheliyan, legal sources said.

The Judge ordered the investigating officers to take the materials to Colombo for forensic analysis. He also instructed the officers to study all evidence, and submit a report as soon as possible, legal sources added.

The indiscriminate attack on the students was an act of retaliation for the claymore attack on the area resulting in the death of five Sri Lanka Army soldiers and wounding four, sources in the area said.
