Resettled Tamil woman's body recovered near SLA bund in Thenmaraadchi

[TamilNet, Thursday, 26 January 2012, 23:55 GMT]
The skeleton of a recently slain 28-year-old unmarried Tamil woman has been recovered near an abandoned military bund used by the Sri Lanka Army in A'rukuve'li, located along Kearatheevu Road (Jaffna - Mannaar Road) in Thenmaraadchi on Wednesday. The victim, Atputhamalar Subramaniyam, who had resettled in Thanangki'lappu near Ma'ravanpulavu of Thenmaraadchi last year, has been missing since November 13. But, her family was receiving SMS messages for some time from her cell phone. The abductors have been sending the messages with the intention of making the family to believe that she was not abducted, relatives of the victim who came for the funeral on Thursday told media. Tension prevailed in the recently resettled area where the occupying SLA is still on random patrol.

Thanangki'lappu village, where the victim was living, was allowed for resettlement in July 2011.

The A'rukuve'li area where her remains were found is still regarded as a military area, although SL Presidential sibling Basil Rajapaksa had declared the area for resettlement last year. Even after 16 years, the SL military is still using the area, and civilian access remains restricted.

The skeleton was found by rabbit-hunters who went to the area.

The judge of Chavakachcheari courts P. Anantharaja and the forensic medical officer from the Jaffna hospital Dr. Sivarooban visited the site with the SL police from Chaavakachcheari.

The father of Atputhamalar identified the remains as that of his daughter by recognizing the cloths and the hair of the slain victim.

The remains were sent to Jaffna hospital for medical examinations and the judge allowed the family to conduct the funeral on Thursday.
