Funerals of the five Tamil students killed by Sri Lanka armed forces on Tuesday will take place together on Thursday morning in the Trincomalee Hindu Cemetery. Bodies of the students are now kept in their respective houses for Trincomalee residents to pay last respects. The bodies will be brought to Trincomalee Sri Koneswara Hindu College on Thursday morning around 9 a.m., sources said.

The bodies will be placed on the open-air stage in the college premises for public viewing, sources said.

Provincial education ministry officials, principals, teachers and students are expected to participate in a condolence meeting, College officials said.

A committee has been formed to organize the funeral.

All five bodies will be taken in a procession from the college through Post Office Road, Power House Road, Thirugnansamapanthar Road and Madathady to the Hindu Cemetery, sources said.

Meanwhile, bodies of the students were handed over to their parents Tuesday evening after postmortem examination held in the Trincomalee general hospital. The postmortem report would be submitted to the Trincomalee Magistrate who is to hold the inquest into these deaths later.

The handing over of bodies took place in the presence of Mr.K.Thurairatnasingham, Trincomalee district parliamentarian without any condition despite reports that security forces may demand written consent from parents claiming that their sons were terrorists.

Mr.K.Thurairatnasingham, Trincomalee district parliamentarian was in the hospital from morning till evening watching the interests of dead youths till their bodies were handed over, sources said.
