3 corpses of women washed ashore in Nainaatheevu

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 17 September 2008, 13:50 GMT]
Three corpses of women in highly decomposed state were found washed ashore Tuesday in Nainaatheevu, an islet of Jaffna, by local residents who informed Oorkaavattu'rai (Kayts) police. Ms. Joy Mahadeva, Oorkaavattu'rai magistrate, visited the place in Nainaatheevu where the corpses lay and held the inquest into the deaths. She directed the police to hand over the corpses to Jaffna Teaching Hospital (JTH) mortuary for identification.

The three women may be residents of Mannaar who had fled to Tamil Nadu as refugees by boat with others and had drowned when their boat capsized mid-sea, local residents said. The faces of the women are beyond recognition due to their highly decomposed state. Meanwhile, Sunday the corpse of an Indian citizen was found washed ashore in Nedunththeevu (Delft) and the corpse of a woman was found Monday evening washed ashore on Queen's Tower beach in Nedunththeevu. Kayts police handed over the three corpses recovered in Nainaatheevu along with the woman's corpse recovered from Queen's Tower beach to JTH mortuary Tuesday. Altogether five corpses washed ashore in the islets of Jaffna since Sunday are kept in JTH mortuary.
