Paramilitary Karuna group men gunned down a Tamil engineer Tuesday around 8:20 p.m after calling him out of his house in Yard Veethi in Kalmunai police division in Ampaa’rai district, his relatives said. There had been arguments between the victim and Iniya Barathi, Karuna group Amparai district head and a co-ordinator of President Mahinda Rajapakse, in recent times on matters related to road development contracts in Ampaa’rai, they said.

The engineer was identified as M. Alagenthiran, 40, the father of 3 children, attached to Road Development Department in Ampaa’rai.

Iniya Barathi had intimidated Alagenthiran several times that contracts of development schemes in Ampaa’rai should be given to Karuna group, the sources said.

The victim’s body was given to family members after post mortem examination in Kalmunai district hospital.
