EPDP paramilitary stricken by internal strife

[TamilNet, Thursday, 05 December 2013, 23:37 GMT]
Following the arrest of EPDP’s Jaffna District organizer and the opposition leader in the Northern Provincial Council Kamal Kamalendran for alleged involvement in the killing of the EPDP chairman of Neduntheevu civic body Mr Daniel Rexian alias Rajeev, the internal strife in the paramilitary group has widened. The involvement of EPDP operatives in the killing of Tamil journalists will be exposed, informed sources said. The Sri Lankan military intelligence has been using EPDP operatives to exercise control over the occupied Jaffna. Some of these operatives would be deployed as scapegoats when Colombo would be forced to conduct a show of investigations in the near future, the sources further said.

NPC opposition leader Kamalendran was in possession of a pistol, even though the group claimed it was no more armed. The 9mm gun was used to kill Daniel Rexian, according to the SL police investing the murder.

Mr Kamalendran was arrested while he was absconding in Colombo with the help of EPDP leader and SL minister Douglas Devananda.

The SL police have also arrested the wife of the slain EPDP councillor and another EPDP operative, implicating all the three in the murder.
