Two Allaipiddy refugee brothers shot dead, sister seriously injured

[TamilNet, Monday, 27 November 2006, 17:01 GMT]
Unidentified armed men arriving in a 'white van' Sunday around midnight to a house on Navalar street in Navanthurai, Jaffna, sprayed bullets killing two brothers on the spot while seriously injuring the twin sister of one of the brothers, all siblings displaced from Allaipiddy, Jaffna police said. The seriously injured sister was rushed to Jaffna Teaching hospital.

Mariyathas Jude 32 and Mariyathas Julias 30 were identified as the brothers killed. Maiyathas Jasmine 32, the seriously injured, is the twin sister of Mariyathas Jude, hospital sources said.

The siblings, originally from Allaipiddy in the Jaffna islet of Kayts, where 8 persons were massacred on August 17th allegedly by the Eelam Peoples Democratic Party (EPDP) paramilitary members along with the Kayts Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) cadres, had fled to Navanthurai in Jaffna in fear of the killers, Navanthurai residents said.

The killings may be connected to the refusal by the siblings to comply with the wishes of a Tamil minister to re-settle them back in Allaipiddy, the Navanthurai residents added.
