Unidentified armed men took away a fisherman from his home at Kinaiyadi Nagathambiran temple street in Valaichenai police division in Batticaloa and shot him dead Monday around 11:00 p.m, said Valaichenai police.

The dead fisherman was identified as Thambipillai Karunakaran, 34, father of 2 children of Kinaiyady Nagthambiran Temple street near Kinaiyady Murugan Temple road in Valaichenai.

He was shot with a 9mm pistol.

The dead body with three bullet wounds on its head is kept at the Valaichenai hospital morgue pending inquest into death, added the police.

Karunakaran catches fish in the Kinaiyady river and sells them to people living in the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) held territory across the river.

He may have been shot dead by the armed men on suspicion that he provides information the LTTE, said the police.

Valaichenai is situated 27 km north of Batticaloa town.
