Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Intelligence Unit men shot and killed Friday around 8:00 p.m a Tamil woman, the mother of two children, in her house at Kaakkaachivaddai village in Vellaave’li police division in Batticaloa district. A 14-year-old Tamil girl was raped by a policeman Sunday while a Tamil woman social activist was strangled to death Monday, in Viveakaananthapuram, the neighbuoring village of Kaakkaachivaddai, where the mother of two children was shot and killed by SLA Friday night, sources in Batticaloa said. The killing being the third consecutive incident of violence perpetrated on Tamil women by Sri Lanka armed forces in Vellaave’li police division within a week has created tension and fear among the Tamils of the area.

The victim killed Friday was identified as Thambapillai Perinpanayaki, 31, a mother of two children.

The Medical Officer at Ka’luvaangchchikkudi government hospital who performed the post mortem examination on the victim’s body in the hospital said that there were four gunshot wounds found on the head of the body.
