[TamilNet, Thursday, 29 October 1998, 19:27 GMT]
The body of Uthayakumar, which the Sri Lankan Army handed over to the Jaffna hospital yesterday, was flown to Colombo this evening for a post-mortem to determine the cause of his death.

The Jaffna coroner Mr.K. Kesavan told the Police this morning following the inquest into Uthayakumar's death that as there are no facilities in Jaffna for conducting a post mortem investigation, his body should be flown to Colombo for forensic examination.

Mr. Rasanayagam, 62, one of his relatives accompanied the body to Colombo.

Meanwhile, Uthayakumar's wife denied SLA's claim that he committed suicide in detention

Rasanayakam Uthayakumar, 44, was arrested by the Sri Lankan Army in Jaffna on October 23.
