Tamil trader narrowly escapes murder in Vanni

[TamilNet, Friday, 17 August 2012, 23:16 GMT]
A 44-year-old Tamil trader narrowly escaped from a killer squad that came in motorbikes and fired at him after calling him to come out of his residence at Tha'n'neer-oottu in Mu'l'liyava'lai Thursday around 9:30 p.m. The attackers escaped through the military checkposts manned by the occupying Sri Lanka Army soldiers as the people from the area gathered at the site after hearing the shouting of the victim.

The victim, P. Giritharan, managed to run away from the killers after receiving a gunshot wound in one of his thighs, news sources in Mullaiththeevu said.

Mr Giritharan is admitted at Mullaiththeevu government hospital.

Residents of Tha'n'neer-oottu suspect that the SL military has begun deploying killer squads in the district.
