Seenithamby Yogeswaran of Panichankerny, shot by Karuna group gunmen Tuesday around 10.30 a.m near Kayankerny Sri Lanka Army (SLA) camp, succumbed to bullet wounds Tuesday night at Colombo hospital, medical sources said. Yogeswaran was transferred from Batticaloa hospital to Colombo Hospital Tuesday, his relatives said.

"My younger brother Yogeswaran is married and has a daughter. He works as a fishmonger at Sallitheevu in Panichankerny and he does not support any group or organisation," said his brother.

"Karuna group gunmen stopped my brother and his companion riding a motorbike, 50 meters from the Kayankerny SLA camp and had asked my brother whether he was a member of any group. Though he had answered in the negative, the gunmen had shot him on the head with a pistol and escaped," the brother further said.

Yogeswaran's companion said that the gunmen, immediately after the shooting, had ordered him to run and though in a shocked state he had managed get the help of a non-government organisation vehicle passing by to rush Yogeswaran to Valaichenai hospital.
