Jaffna police recovered Wednesday the body of an elderly man who had gone missing 15 April from his house at Kachcheariyadi in Jaffna. Police suspect that he had been abducted and later killed to rob the gold jewelry he wore and the cash he had in his possession. Meanwhile, robbers who entered a house in Thirunaavatku’lam Sivan Koayiladi in Vavuniyaa Tuesday night stabbed a nine-year-old girl to death and seriously injured her mother before robbing the cash and jewelry, sources in Vavuniyaa said. Law and order have deteriorated in the North where incidents of old people and women staying alone being killed for the purpose of robbery have increased at an alarming rate, sources in Jaffna said.
