The body of a member of the Liberation Tigers’ political division in the Amparai district was found in a paddy field with gun shot wounds Thursday afternoon. LTTE officials said that Mr. Poovannan was abducted by unidentified gunmen Wednesday night from Karaithivu, 48 kilometres south of Batticaloa.

Farmers had found the body in a field called Pooraanvelivettai about four kilometres from Karaithivu this afternoon with hands tied behind the back and with gunshot wounds in the head, back and chest.

The Liberation Tigers removed the body from the field and took it to their martyr’s memorial in Tharavai, in the interior of the Batticaloa district.
