Thaandikulam students' murder inquiry stalls

[TamilNet, Sunday, 30 March 2008, 14:37 GMT]
The Vavuniyaa High Court Thursday put off the inquiry into the Thaandikulam students' murder case for June 30 when the State Counsel informed court that an application has been made to transfer the case to Anuradhapura High Court, legal sources said. A police constable has been indicted with the killing of five students and injuring 11 students by shooting on 16 November 2006 inside the Vavuniyaa Agricultural College located at Thaandikulam.

Following a bomb explosion outside the Vavuniyaa Agricultural College, members of the armed forces had entered the college and fired at students, killing five injuring 11.

After the initial inquiry the Attorney General indicted a police constable with the murder of five students.

When the case was taken up for inquiry in the Vavuniyaa High Court, the accused police constable appeared in court. He had not retained any counsel.

The State counsel told court that an application seeking transfer of the case to Anuradhapura High Court is pending.
