SLA rape, murder suspects remanded

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 15 March 2000, 09:32 GMT]
Mannar Acting Magistrate, Caius Feldano, remanded yesterday two Sri Lankan Army personnel in connection with the rape and murder of a 21-year-old Tamil woman, Ida Hamalitta, in Pallimunai in north western Mannar on 11 July, last year.

The CID officials who are investigating the rape and murder produced 11 T-56 assault rifles which were in the possession of the soldiers of the Pallimunai army camp on the day of incident.

They said investigations revealed that one the rifles was used to shoot the victim and appealed to the court to accept it as case evidence.

The police told the courts that they were waiting for instructions from the Attorney General to continue with the case.

The Acting Magistrate ordered the Police to remand the two suspects until March 28.
