Youth reported dead in STF roundup in Akkaraippattu

[TamilNet, Friday, 10 August 2007, 11:06 GMT]
Sri Lankan Special Task Force commandos in Akkaraippattu cordoned off the house of a family that runs a foreign employment agency Friday around 11:30 a.m. and fired at a 28-year-old man who was visiting the house. The victim, identified as Gunaratnam Ranjan, 28, was reported dead by the Police who said the death occurred due to the intake of cyanide. The family that runs the business has fled the area and contacted Human Rights Commission officials in Batticaloa seeking protection as the Police alleged that the visitor was a Liberation Tigers of the Tamileelam (LTTE) cadres, initial reports said.

The STF has cordoned off the site of the house and was searching for the family, Police said.

The employment agency is located on Maruththuvar Veethi, Akkaraippattu 08.

Dead body was taken to Akkaraippattu hospital for postmortem examinations.
