Youth shot dead in Koappaay, SLA imposes fishing restriction in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Monday, 26 November 2007, 01:28 GMT]
Two unidentified men riding a motor bicycle shot dead a youth riding in a motorbike opposite Heroes Resting place, Koappaay, in Sri Lanka Army (SLA) controlled Jaffna Sunday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. as preparations were being made in heroes resting places in Liberation Tigers of Tamileelam (LTTE) controlled areas to remember war dead heroes.

The victim identified as Jeyakumar Kesavan, 25, from Aadiyapaatham Road, Naloor was proceeding towards his home when two men following him shot him and fled from the scene

The victim’s body recovered by Koappaay police was handed over at the mortuary of Jaffna teaching hospital, Saturday night.

Last year two youths were shot to death in the same area at the same time.

Meanwhile, Sri Lankan armed forces in the North have stepped up security measures and imposed severe restriction on fishing in Jaffna peninsula, fearing invasion by LTTE across the sea.

Fishing in the areas around Jaffna lagoon, Vadamaraadchi, Valikaamam and the Islets have been restricted within the past two days.

There has been a total ban on fishing in some parts of the peninsula while in some other parts fishing is permitted only on alternate days.

In some parts of the peninsula, permission has been granted for fishing within restricted hours and the armed forces have issued instructions that fishermen in these areas can go out for fishing only after 8:00a.m and must return to the shore before noon.

While security has been beefed up around the entire coastal region in the peninsula, the armed forces have stepped up their search operation in Vadamaraadchi, Kurunakar, Paashaiyoor, Kozhumpuththurai, Ariyaalai and in some parts of Valikaamam, sources in coastal areas said.
