[TamilNet, Thursday, 15 March 2007, 02:02 GMT]
Police recovered mutilated male body packed in a green plastic bag normally used by Sri Lanka Army (SLA), caught in the fishing net along the coast at Ward 10 in Punguduthivu, an islet of Jaffna peninsula, Wednesday morning. The body, with head, hands and legs severed, bore deep cut wounds in the stomach and appeared to belong to a male under 30, sources in Punguduthivu said.

The bag containing the corpse was filled with stones and tied around with barbed to stay in deep ocean bottom, but had been washed ashore due to rough seas where it got caught in the fishing net.

The body may belong to one of those abducted in Mannar area, the sources added.

Kayts Magistrate Mr. J. Trotsky who visited the site and held the inquest directed the police to hand over the remains to Jaffna Teaching hospital for identification.

Kayts police handed over the body to Jaffna Teaching hospital Wednesday evening.
