Another Thenmaradchi trader shot and killed

[TamilNet, Monday, 17 April 2006, 08:11 GMT]
Four gunmen riding in two motorbikes entered an electric shop located on A9 Road at Meesalai in Thenmaradchi and gunned down Mr. Ramalingam Sakilan, 30, the owner of the shop, around 11:30 a.m., Monday. The gunmen were wearing military uniforms. Around 15 SLA soldiers were standing outside the shop blocking civilian traffic when the killing took place. Tamil traders are being targetted by SLA operated gunmen in retaliation to the escalating Claymore attacks, civilian sources said.

The victim's father, Mr. Ramalingam, who was at the site when gunmen entered the shop, accused direct involvement of Sri Lankan Army soldiers in the killing of his son.

The victim's dead body was taken to Jaffna Hospital.

The electric shop is located at Vempirai Junction (Puththur junction).
