Meanwhile, an automechanic was shot into his eyes and killed at his workshed at Thattatheru Junction Saturday around 3:30 p.m. A family man was rushed to hospital with gunshot wounds in Vadamaradchi in the morning.

The 33-year-old automechanic was identifed as Thirnavukkarasu Sureshkumar, 33, of Neeraviyadi. The killing has taken place close to a Sri Lanka Army checkpost.
