Dead body of young woman found near Pungkudutheevu military camp

[TamilNet, Thursday, 20 January 2011, 07:52 GMT]
Dead body of a young woman was found in a well Tuesday in an abandoned area called Munaip-pulam, near the military camp in the island of Pungkudutheevu, off Jaffna. It was not identified until Wednesday. It is suspected that the victim was abducted from some other place and was killed. Sometimes back a local girl was raped, killed and dumped into a well near the same military camp and when people protested against suspected military personal, they were fired at by the military. This month, the occupying SL Army in Jaffna announced the take over of islands sector from the SL Navy and it is currently engaged in making Pungkudutheevu as the largest base for the occupying Army in the islands.

A person who went to Munaippulam to graze cattle found the dead body in the well and informed the police. The Kayts judge ordered investigation and search for other evidences from the site.

Sources at the Jaffna Teaching Hospital said that they are taking efforts to identify the victim, judged to be 30-35 year-old.
