Moongkilaa'ru victims slain by heavy weapons: forensic report

[TamilNet, Friday, 21 March 2014, 07:26 GMT]
A forensic team that inspected the skeletons of the victims from a bunker at Moongkilaa'ru have submitted their report to Mullaiththeevu District Court stating that they have found 11 pieces of shrapnel used in artillery and mortar shells. The 9 victims were slain in Sri Lanka Army fired shells during the mass exodus by the civilians from the so-called ‘No Fire Zone’ which was targeted by the SL military fire during the genocidal onslaught. Hundreds of civilians perished in the shelling along the road and the families and relatives were not able to conduct proper burial. Volunteers who helped to bury the victims say most of the victims buried at the said bunker belonged to a single family from Thiruvaiyaa’ru in Ki’inochchi district.

The victims were fleeing Sri Lankan military claimed ‘No Fire Zone’ towards LTTE held territory in Mullaiththeevu while they were targeted by Sri Lanka Army shelling as the Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) drones were providing coordinates with clear knowledge that those being targeted were innocent civilians.

There was no gunshot wounds in the skeletons as the SL military was claiming, legal sources in Mullaiththeevu told TamilNet on Friday.

The shrapnel beheaded one of the victims, believed to be a woman, the report has further said.

The victims have targeted by different types of shells as the shrapnel pieces recovered belong to different types, the legal sources in Mullaiththeevu said.

Following the discovery of mass grave after mass grave in the occupied Tamil homeland in Sri Lankan military held former ‘security zones’, the SL military was staging a false propaganda that the LTTE was behind slaying of the 9 victims in Moongkilaa'ru.
