Headless body recovered, woman killed in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 21 August 2007, 07:42 GMT]
Kayts police and Neduntheevu (Delft) police recovered Monday a headless body with hands and legs severed in Neduntheevu area and handed it over to Jaffna Teaching hospital. Meanwhile, unidentified gunmen shot dead a young woman Sunday night in her house at Manthuvil north in Thenmaraadchi, Kodikaamam police said.

Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) in Neduntheevu, on finding the headless body which had been washed ashore Sunday night, informed the SLA Monday.

The place from where the body was washed ashore is not known.

The woman shot dead Sunday night was identified as Chanthirarasa Kalyani, 30, a resident of Manthuvil north.

Kodikaamam police handed over Kalyani's body to Jaffna Teaching hospital for postmortem examination Monday night.

Earlier, a headless body of a male, caught in the fishing nets in Pungudutheevu sea, one of Jaffna islets, had aroused suspicions of alleged Kayts SLN and collaborating paramilitary involvement.
