Woman’s skeleton found in Naakarkoayil SLA base area

[TamilNet, Monday, 15 November 2010, 15:26 GMT]
The de-mining team engaged in surveying the area near Naakarkoayil Sri Lanka Army (SLA) base in Vadamaraadchi found the skeletal remains beneath a bush suspected to be of a young woman identified by the inner garments found near the skeleton, Point Pedro police said. Though Sri Lanka government had wanted to renovate the Point Pedro-Maruthangkea’ni main road that goes through Naakarkoayil, local SLA authorities had closed the road saying that the area was infested with landmines. The SLA higher officials in Palaali, however, had all of a sudden given permission for de-mining in the said area.

Point Pedro Court being informed of the finding of the skeleton through police, its magistrate Ms. Joy Mahadeva visited the site and conducted inquiries.

The magistrate directed the police to hand over the skeleton to Jaffna Teaching Hospital mortuary for identification.
