Tamil farmer shot dead in Batticaloa

[TamilNet, Sunday, 30 November 2008, 12:40 GMT]
Unidentified gunmen shot and killed a Tamil farmer Saturday around 9:30 p.m in Ka'luvaangchchikudi police division at his house in Ward 12, Kuruma'nve'li area. This is the first killing after a 12-hour police-curfew was clamped down in Batticalao district, taking place just after three hours after the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) cordon and search operation during the curfew, the sources added. A Special Task Force (STF) camp is located 200 m from the site of the killing.

The victim was identified as Ilayathambi Kurukulasingam, 40, the father of four children.

The body is kept at Ka'luvaanchchikudi base hospital.

Following the killing of 23 innocent civilians within the past 4 days by armed men in Batticaloa and mounting international attention on the terror prevailing in the East, a 12-hour police-curfew has been clamped down in Batticaloa district from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Saturday to launch search operations.
