Coverup of rape underway?

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 18 March 1998, 23:59 GMT]
Sources in Jaffna claimed today that moves are afoot in Sri Lankan military circles in the peninsula to play down or to subtly cover up the rape of the deaf and dumb girl in Meesalai west on March 16.

The girl was operated the Jaffna hospital today for a wound inside her vagina which, according to doctors who examined her, had been caused by a blunt object.

They said the girl had bled profusely from the wound and lesions caused by the forcible penetration.

Sources in Jaffna said today that military officials made a subtle attempt to venture the suggestion that the girl was not raped but assaulted by persons not in the army and that she could not have known positively that she was raped by soldiers as she was blind folded.

However, the army is yet to officially say anything about the incident.
