[TamilNet, Saturday, 10 July 2010, 14:55 GMT]
The Sinhala doctor alleged of killing a Tamil female nurse in Veala’nai government hospital in the island off Jaffna Saturday morning has been suddenly transferred to a hospital in Changkaanai in Jaffna peninsula. Meanwhile, Oorkaavattu’rai police said that they found evidence indicating that the nurse had been killed. The doctor had been taken to Changkaanai escorted by Sri Lanka Army. Meanwhile, Veala’nai residents who had protested against the killing said that they will continue their protest.

More than a hundred residents of Veala’nai in the islets of Jaffna attempted to attack a Sinhala doctor in Veala’nai government hospital Saturday morning on finding a young woman nurse dead, hung inside the hospital.

The victim was identified as Saravani Yarsika, 28, a resident of Kaithadi in Jaffna. Yarsika lived in the hospital nurses’ quarters.

Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) soldiers occupying the islets of Jaffna rushed to the scene and took away the Sinhala doctor to their base.

The enraged residents allege that the Sinhala doctor had killed the nurse and then hung her with a rope in an attempt to show that she had committed suicide.
