Tension prevails in Veala地ai following alleged killing of nurse

[TamilNet, Saturday, 10 July 2010, 09:09 GMT]
More than a hundred residents of Veala地ai in the islets of Jaffna attempted to attack a Sinhalese doctor in Veala地ai government hospital Saturday morning on finding a local young woman nurse dead, hung inside the hospital, sources in Vela地ai said. Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) soldiers occupying the islets of Jaffna rushed to the scene and took away the Sinhalese doctor to their base, the sources said. The enraged residents allege that the Sinhalese doctor had killed the nurse and then hung her with a rope in an attempt to show that she had committed suicide.

The victim, a 28-year-old female nurse, who is a native of Veala地ai had complained to her superiors of indecent approaches by the Sinhalese doctor, some of the protesting residents said.

Due to the shortage of medical doctors in Jaffna peninsula many Sinhalese doctors have been appointed in the hospitals in the peninsula.

Tension prevails in Veala地ai where SLN soldiers and police are deployed in large numbers.
