Slain Vavuniya PLOTE leader said Tamil nationalist

[TamilNet, Monday, 17 July 2006, 05:17 GMT]
A group of PLOTE members claiming to be pro-Tamil nationalists, in a media release issued in Tamil, have alleged that the PLOTE leader Bavan was assasinated by the Sri Lanka Army intelligence in collaboration with the PLOTE hierarchy. Bavan, the leader of PLOTE's military wing in Vavuniya, abducted and killed Thursday, was a leader who turned nationalist and opposed the paramilitary agenda against the PLOTE hierarchy, the cadres have claimed criticising the top hierarchy of the paramilitary organisation for collaborating with the Sri Lanka Army intelligence for getting rid of pro Tamil nationalist elements in the organisation.

Ratnam Sriskandarajah alias Bavan had contributed to contain the paramilitary agenda from getting expanded at great risk to his life even after the demise of his friend, Kanapathipillai Tharmalingam, alias Vithy in 2000, the letter claimed.

Vithy was arrested and handed over to Sri Lankan Intelligence by PLOTE leadership, the group claimed, issuing memorial photos of both Bavan and Vithy to media.

Another PLOTE member Mani was also abducted and handed over to Sri Lankan Intelligence, the group of PLOTE cadres have claimed in their letter faxed to Tamil papers in Jaffna and Colombo. Krishnasamy Thirunavukarsu, alias Manni, 26, was abducted from his home in Veppankulam in Vavuniya in January. His body was found at the Sinhala border village of Attambusgasgoda located 15 km southeast of Vavuniya town.

An ex-PLOTE operative, who did not wish to be named, confirming the claim of the group said Bavan and Vithy were suspected to have played a role in an attack that claimed the life of its once notorious military leader Manikadasan.
