Two unidentified armed men on motorcycle following a labourer, returning home after being interrogated at the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) camp in Point Pedro, shot and killed him Thursday morning on Point Pedro-Chaavakachcheari road, 200 m from Manthikai hospital, sources in Point Pedro said. SLA troops had confiscated his National Identity Card (NIC) Wednesday in Point Pedro and had asked him to report at the SLA camp for interrogation Thursday morning, sources added.

The victim was identified as Thesingan Vigneswaran, 28, a labourer of Rajakiraamam area in Karaveddi West.

In the same area, unidentified armed men in a white van, on 22 May, had forcibly abducted the 19-year-old son of the couple who were abducted 14 May during curfew hours from their house in Karaveddi West in Vadamaraadchi following the large scale cordon and search operation conducted in Vadamaraadchi by SLA.

Point Pedro acting magistrate Mr. Alex Rajah, after conducting the inquest into the death, directed the victim’s body to be given to family members.
