All the males in the village had been taken to the local SLA camp for interrogation following the search, leaving only women in the village.

The victim’s body is kept in Jaffna Teaching Hospital mortuary for post mortem examination to be held.

Meanwhile, early this week, a young woman had been shot and killed by unidentified armed men in a similar manner as she was returning home after reporting at the local SLA camp in Kodikaamam in Thenmaraadchi where she had signed the register, police investigations held into the killing revealed.
