Trader shot dead in Neervely, Jaffna

[TamilNet, Saturday, 27 May 2006, 01:49 GMT]
Unidentified gunmen shot and killed L. Yasotharan, 35, a trader in front of his shop located in Neervely on the Jaffna-Point Pedro road, Friday evening around 5.00 p.m, said sources from Jaffna. Yasotharan, seriously injured was immediately rushed to Jaffna Teaching hospital but later succumbed to his gunshot wounds at the hospital, hospital sources said.

Yasotharan is the third trader in Neerveli to be killed by unidentified gunmen.

His body is kept at the Jaffna hospital morgue for autopsy and death inquiry, added the sources.

Meanwhile, Ms. Srinithi Nandasekaran, Additional Magistrate Jaffna, visiting the site of the killings at the Aadiapatham road-Nallur Tample road junction on Friday around 12.20 p.m, checked the identity card said to be found in the trouser pocket of one of the two shot dead bodies and said that it belonged to Mahendran Pratheepan 22 of Ariyalai Neduntheru, said sources from Nallur.

Although the photograph matched the face of the dead man, the doubts remain if the name on the identity card is the real name of the dead youth, added the sources.

Both the dead bodies, still to be identified, are kept at the Jaffna Teachings Hospital morgue.
