Deluxshan's body still remains in front of his house.

Deluxshan had actively participated in the second death anniversary of assassinated journalist Tharaki Sivaram held recently.

Deluxshan, an old student of Jaffna Hindu College . His mother is the principal of Kokkuvil Hindu Primary school.

Varman, another energetic and young journalist who was one of the organizers of Sivaram's first death anniversary, was shot dead allegedly by paramilitary members operating with Sri Lanka Army and police in Jaffna peninsula.

The brazen killing of the young and promising media student and many youths being killed summarily by motor cycle riding armed men right inside Sri Lanka Army (SLA) High Security Zone (HSZ) in recent times, has paralysed the people of Jaffna peninsula, civil activists in Jaffna said.
