Young woman raped in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 17 March 1998, 23:59 GMT]
A deaf and dumb girl was gang raped by a group of SLA soldiers in Meesaalai west in Jaffna yesterday around 12 noon said Chavakachcheri hospital sources. She was admitted today to the hospital after she had attempted to immolate herself by pouring a barrel of kerosene on her body.

The girl, S. Selvarani 28, was on her way to visit a friend on her bicyle when she had been stopped by a group of SLA soldiers who had gagged and bound her and had then gang raped her.

When the soldiers had let her go the girl had rushed home and had doused herself with a barrel of kerosene.

Her mother had discovered her when she was about to set herself on fire. The mother had calmed the girl and had found out about how the soldiers had sexually assaulted her.

She was then brought to the Chavakachcheri hospital this morning by her mother and relatives.

The Sri Lankan Police in Jaffna is yet to record her statement.

A Sri Lankan Police constable attempted to rape a 3 month pregnant woman in Thirunelvely in Jaffna, last Saturday. He was caught and severely assaulted by a group of local civilians.
