Wife of slain ex-policeman of Tamil Eelam denounces slow resolution of case

[TamilNet, Saturday, 15 August 2015, 14:56 GMT]
Kavitha, the wife of assassinated Tamil social activist Nakuleswaran Krishnasamy in Ve’l’laangku’lam, Mannaar, this week cried out her frustration over the slow progress of the investigation surrounding the Nov 12, 2014 assassination of her husband. She alleges that the Sri Lankan Police and powerful politicians have been deliberately slowing the investigation process and expressed her fears that both are working together in bailing out the suspects involved in the slaying of her husband.

Seven suspects, including the village officer (GS) of Ve'l'laangku'lam, were taken under the custody of the Sri Lankan Police. Included in the suspects is an alcoholic who is deemed physically incapable of executing the crime.

The case is filed at the Magistrate Court, however, the case should be heard at the High Court for it to prosper. The family is waiting for the issuance of written instruction from the Attorney General for the case transfer. To date, no letter has been issued.

Kavitha deplores the delay saying this is due to political influence that may eventually cause the escape of the real killers. Even the politicians who promised assistance during the funeral failed in their promise to extend so, she said.

Kavitha lamented highly over the latent cover-up as the family is still grieving the loss of the father of two kids. She bemoans the trauma suffered by their kids who, at nights, run to the spot where their father was gunned down and cry.

Desperate for justice and needing to appease the grief of their family, she says, she just takes her kids to the temple and prays. With no hope in the immediate future and for fear that the real killers are still on the loose, she says she can only seek solace in the temple.

Nakuleswaran served earlier as a policeman in the Tamil Eelam police and after the war, he was actively involved in the protection of Tamil lands against illegal seizure.
