Four partly burnt bodies recovered in Habarana

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 05 December 2006, 12:49 GMT]
Kekirawa police recovered four dead bodies partially burnt in a paddy filed at Ganewella area in Kekirawa police division in Habarana Tuesday around 5:00 a.m. The bodies have been transferred to Polanaruwa hospital.

The bodies, with disfigured faces, appear to be of youths aged 20 to 25 years old, hospital sources said.

The four dead may have been killed elsewhere and brought to the field where they had been set fire with tyres to make them unidentifiable, the police added.

The killed youths may have been abducted in the villages of Thimbulagala, Wellikanda, Mannampity, Soruvil, Sungavil on the borders of Batticaloa and Polanaruwa districts, the police said.

Several cases of youths being abducted by Karuna paramilitary groups collaborating with the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) have been reported earlier, residents of Batticaloa said.
