Family man shot dead in Chaavakachcheari

[TamilNet, Thursday, 11 September 2008, 17:19 GMT]
Unidentified armed men on motor cycle following a young family man Thursday opened fire on him near Chaavakachcheari government hospital, sources in Chaavakachcheari said. The seriously injured victim was rushed to Chaavakachcheari hospital first and later transferred to Jaffna Teaching Hospital where he succumbed to his wounds Thursday. The vicitim was one of the persons in Thenmaraadchi who regularly report at the local Sri Lanka Army (SLA) civil administration office to sign the register on the orders of the SLA.

The victim was identified as Thambirasa Muralithas, 34, a resident of Meesaalai West in Thenmaraadchi.

Many persons in Thenmaraadchi who report at the SLA civil administration office to sign the register have been continually killed in recent times.

This has created terror and anxiety among the residents of Thenmaraadchi and many of them have sought refuge with Chavakachcheari Court and Jaffna Human Rights Commission (HRC) Jaffna office.

A 51-year-old family man from Kachchaay in Themaraadchi sought refuge with HRC Jaffna Thursday due to death threats by SLA soldiers and SLA-backed paramilitaries.

On Tuesday a family of five members had sought refuge with Chaavakachcheari Court due to death threats by SLA soldiers and SLA-backed paramilitaries.

Chaavakachcheari court directed the family to be placed in the protective custody of Jaffna prison.

The 32-year-old father, 29-year-old mother, two daughters aged 11 and 7 and an adopted son 19 years old are the members of the family.

The family is from Koayil Kudiyiruppu, Kachchaay, Thampu Thoaddam in Thenmaraadchi.
