STF fire kills civilian

[TamilNet, Thursday, 12 November 1998, 10:17 GMT]
The Special Task Force (STF), an elite commando unit of the Sri Lankan Police, shot and killed a civilian near Arukal Aaru in the Batticaloa district. He has been identified as S.Krishnapillai, 65, from Paalamunai, Mandur in the Batticaloa district.

Meanwhile Sathasivam Nimalanathan, 27, from Kiran in the Batticaloa district was severely beaten by the Sri Lankan Army at Kiran bridge on November 3. He is an employee of the charity CARE.

He was beaten when he was returning from his paddy field which is in an area not controlled by the Army.

He has been admitted to the Batticaloa hospital.

Elsewhere in Batticaloa, the Sri Lankan Army co-ordinating officer of the Kaathankuddy SLA camp summoned Samoorty officials in Kaathankudy and Ariampathy to a meeting on Tuesday afternoon. They were asked to submit a list of vehicle owners in their areas.

The officer further said that the SLA would not allow supply of electricity to areas controlled by the Liberation Tigers and therefore he did not expect that the Tigers would allow the electricity supply to areas controlled by the Army. He said the army was planning to provide electricity to the Batticaloa town using a generator.
