Court orders exhumation of the body of nurse killed in Veala’nai

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 20 July 2010, 15:51 GMT]
Oorkaavattu’rai magistrate Tuesday ordered the body of the family consultant nurse Saravanai Tharsika allegedly killed by Sinhala doctor Priyantha Seniviratne in Veala’nai government hospital in the islets of Jaffna 10 July to be exhumed and sent to Colombo Judicial Medical Officer (JMO) for fresh medical examination as the victim’s mother had said that she suspects her daughter was sexually abused before being killed, in a petition filed Monday, sources in Jaffna said. Arrangements are being made to exhume the body 28 July buried in Kaithadi Hindu crematorium grounds. Tharsika’s mother had said in her petition that she does not have faith in the medical examination being conducted in Jaffna. Meanwhile, it is claimed that the suspect Sinhala doctor was attacked by Tamil inmates in Jaffna prison when he was detained in the prison 13 July, the sources added.

The Tamil prisoners in Jaffna prison are alleged to have attacked the suspect Sinhala doctor in the cell where he was taken to by Prison officer Nanthakumar, accusing the suspect of sexually abusing and killing nurse Tharsika.

Meanwhile, a gang of more than eight persons arriving on motorcycles Saturday night at the residence of the Prison officer Nanthakumar in Aanaikkoaddai had assaulted him, according to the complaint made to Maanippaay police by Nanthakumar.

It is alleged that Sri Lanka Army Intelligence Officers are in the background of the above attack.

Nanthakumar is now being interrogated into the attack by inmates on the suspect Sinhala doctor.

In his complaint to Maanippaay police Nanthakumar said that he had led the suspect to the cell on the orders of his superior officer.
