Wounded EPDP cadre dies

[TamilNet, Monday, 24 November 1997, 23:59 GMT]
The EPDP cadre who was shot and seriously wounded in mid sea on Saturday by the Sri Lankan navy died in the Jaffna hospital last night. He was identified as Anojan.

The hospital authorities had refused to hand over the body to the EPDP without postmortem.

The organisation had then wanted to bring it to the Jaffna court today for inquest and thereby take the body for burial.

This was not possible as the court had wound up business for the day by the time the EPDP took up the matter.

Meanwhile unconfirmed reports said that a SLN guard was wounded by EPDP fire at Kayts yesterday.

EPDP sources declined to say anything on the matter.
