The naked body of a youth, bound in barbed wire, with several gunshot wounds and deep, extensive torture marks, was discovered inside bush jungles in an isolated area near Kerudavil, Manthuvil in Thenmaradchy Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m. by local residents, sources in Jaffna said. The residents informed the district Grama Sevakar who then informed the Chavakachcheri Police who recovered the body, according to sources.

The youth, Mahalingam Thavarajah, 26, was from Vembadi area, Thunnalai in Vadamaradchy and was living in Meesalai North Kodikamam when he was abducted and killed.

Chavakachcheri Magistrate, A Premshankar, visited the site where the body was found to conduct investigations, and ordered the Chavakachcheri Police to transfer the body to Jaffna Teaching Hospital for postmortem examinations.

Earlier, in May 2006, 8 youths went missing in Manthuvil, allegedly killed by the SLA soldiers, according to the villagers.

The Manthuvil victims bodies were never found.
