Unidentified persons knifed to death a family man in Thurkkaapuram, a village close to Sri Lanka Army (SLA) High Security Zone (HSZ) in Thellippazhai Thursday night during curfew hours, sources in Jaffna said.

The body with knife cuts to the throat was recovered by the police and handed over to Jaffna Teaching Hospital mortuary.

Mallaakam magistrate Mr. Prapakaran directed the police to investigate into the killing.

This is the third killing in the same manner in this particular area.
