[TamilNet, Monday, 20 July 2009, 18:46 GMT]
Oorkaavatu’rai police recovered Sunday the corpse of a young male found washed ashore on the beach of Pungkudutheevu, an islet of Jaffna, and handed it over to Jaffna Teaching Hospital (JTH) mortuary. Meanwhile, a male corpse washed ashore on the coast of Ezhuvaitheevu, another islet of Jaffna, was recovered by Oorkaavatttu’rai police Monday and handed over to JTH mortuary. Both bodies, clad only in underwear, were covered with assault injuries, residents who saw the bodies said.

Both corpses appear to be between 25 to 30 years of age, they said.

No one has claimed the bodies so far, hospital authorities said.

People in the islets of Jaffna, are afraid and shocked and they are reminded afresh of similar corpses of youths being washed ashore packed in gunny bags wound around with barbed wire, the sources added.
