SLA trooper found dead in Ezhuthumadduvaa'l

[TamilNet, Saturday, 07 July 2007, 13:35 GMT]
The unidentified body of a 24 year old Sri Lanka Army (SLA) trooper was discovered Friday afternoon near the Forward Defense Lines (FDL) at Ezhuthumadduvaa'l. The body did not have any gunshot injuries but blood was found coming out of his nose and ears, leading to speculation that trauma due to extended physical training had cause the death, informed sources in Thenmaraadchi said.

The trooper was fortifying the FDL at the time of his death, sources said.

However, mystery continues to surround the trooper's death.

Arrangements have been made to transport the body of the trooper to Palaly to be taken to Colombo and then to his home town.

Meanwhile, Chaavakachcheari magistrate has instructed Kodikaamam police to arrange for post mortem examination to be performed in Colombo by the medico-legal officer and to submit to the magistrate’s office.
