Human skeletons recovered from well in Valikaamam North

[TamilNet, Sunday, 12 February 2012, 16:40 GMT]
Recently resettled civilians in Kollangk-kaladdi of Valikaamam North in Jaffna have located human skeletons inside a well while clearing it for their use, sources in Valikaamam told TamilNet Sunday. A skull was located. But, the number of the recovered skeletons indicates that some of the victims had been decapitated, before they were dumped into the well, the sources said. It is believed that the victims were civilians abducted by the Sri Lanka Army operated squads and those who went to check their properties inside the SLA occupied territory after year 1992, when the SLA seized the village of Kollang-kaladdi.

Residents of Kollangkaladdi also said there were three persons from a nearby house reported missing earlier when the area was seized by the SLA.

After discovering human skeletons in wells and toilet pits in the area, the civil organisations representing the resettling civilians have begun a systematic search for similar graves, civil sources in the area said.

Allegations have surfaced that the abducted youth from Jaffna peninsula were taken into the so-called High Security Zones and detained by the Sri Lanka Army there till they were tortured and killed.

The pattern of recovery of skeletons in areas allowed for resettlement, especially inside the buildings used by the SLA as mini-camps and in abandoned wells near the bunds of the SLA in areas recently allowed for resettlement has indicated that such killings have been widespread inside the Hight Security Zone adjacent to the Palaali military base situated in Valikaamam North in Jaffna.
