SLA vehicle accidentally kills civilian in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Monday, 29 June 2009, 19:35 GMT]
A water bowser of Sri Lanka Army (SLA) knocked down and killed Monday a civilian riding bicycle along A9 road in Kaithadi in Jaffna, sources in Jaffna said. Number of accidents caused by SLA vehicles in Jaffna in the past had been considerably reduced due to directives issued by magistrate courts in Jaffna to SLA military police to control SLA vehicles using public roads.

The victim was identified as Thambirasa Velauthapillai who was knocked down from the rear as he was riding his bicycle.

Velauthapillai’s body was recovered and handed over to Jaffna Teaching Hospital mortuary Monday night.
