A 32-year-old reporter and photographer of 'Yarl Thinakkural', a Tamil daily published from Jaffna died Tuesday morning in an accident when he was hit by a bus on A9 road at Usan while on duty. The victim, Perampalam Jeyachandran alias Jeyam, a father of one child, was a native of I'lavaalai. Mr. Jeyachandran was one of the few journalists who served with commitment to journalism particularly during the dangerous times that prevailed in the peninsula, media sources in Jaffna said.

The bus, carrying civilians and some policemen, hit Jeyachandran's motorbike around 7:30 a.m. when he was returning to Jaffna after distributing Thinakural paper in Ki’linochchi.

Jeyam has contributed photos related to many killings, abductions and other such crimes committed by paramilitary men in Jaffna peninsula who collaborated with Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Intelligence Unit men when killings and abductions were widespread in the peninsula.
