Ellalan Army kills youth in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Sunday, 16 May 2004, 16:42 GMT]
Police found the body of a person identified as Subramaniam Chandralalith, 22, shot dead in Jaffna town in the early hours of Sunday morning. He was abducted in a van by unknown persons the day before, Police sources in the northern town said. In a note found near his body, a group calling itself Ellalan Army claimed that it had killed Chandralalith and punished five others for criminal activities including robbery, rape, abduction, extortion, fraud and child molestation.

Five persons who were abducted along with him by the group on Saturday were found in different places in the town blindfolded and with their hands tied.

They had been severely beaten up before they were pushed out of the van in which they were abducted, Police sources in Jaffna said.

There are several cases pending against Subramaniam Chandralalith in the Jaffna courts, according to them.

The note found near his body warned that the Ellalan Army would continue to punish criminals if they did not cease their anti-social activities in Jaffna immediately.

Police said they had not arrested anyone in connection with the murder and abductions. They said they do not know anything about the Ellalan Army.
