More bodies feared buried in Mirusuvil

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 27 December 2000, 21:35 GMT]
In addition to the recently discovered bodies of eight Tamil civilians found buried in Mirusuvil North in Jaffna, residents and local authorities fear more civilian bodies may be hidden buried in areas surrounding Mirusuvil, according to deposition given by Jesutha, the young wife of one of the murdered civilians Theivakulasingam.

"A few days before my husband was killed, when he visited Mirsuvil, he became suspicious of a foul odor coming from a disturbed patch of land. He began digging without the knowledge of the security forces and discovered the body of a young girl of about 18 years old," said Jesutha in her deposition to the police.

Jesutha added that her husband told her that the dead girl was wearing a yellow punjabi-style dress, and that he left his pair of slippers as a marker near the place where he found the body.

"When my husband informed of the foul odor to the security forces they told him that the body of a person who was killed in shelling was buried there," she further said in her deposition.

Formal inquiry into the murder of the eight civilians is to be held tomorrow, Thursday, and Jesutha said she will describe to the officials everything her husband had told her.
