Sitrampalam receives dead-dog threat

[TamilNet, Friday, 10 June 2011, 09:00 GMT]
A dog shot by gun and packed in a bag was put into the well of the house of Professor S.K. Sitrampalam in Thirunelvealy, Jaffna, on Thursday night. The emeritus Professor of Archaeology of the University of Jaffna and Ilangkai Thamizh Arasuk Kadchi (ITAK) stalwart recently gave an interview to a Tamil daily in which he has said that the Mu’l’livaaykkaal war was like Kurukshetra (the war of the Mahabharata epic) and Tamils should never forget it. In another incident recently Rev. Fr. C.G. Jeyakumar, the parish priest of Kayts and former director of Human Development Centre of the Catholic Church was humiliated by a group of thugs who bucketed him with dirt at his church. The identity of the assailants was traced to a private army operated by Sri Lanka Defence Secretary, Gotabhaya Rajapaksa.

Before the incident, Fr. Jeyakumar met an international team that had come to Jaffna and briefed them of the situation in Jaffna.

Threat to civil society members and students of the university has sharply escalated in recent times with the Gotabhaya-thugs put into operation, news sources in Jaffna said.

Last year, the cremation spot of the mother of LTTE leader Pirapaharan was desecrated before the collection of ashes, by running military vehicles over it and by throwing three dogs on the spot after shooting them dead.
