"PLOTE goes on despite killings"

[TamilNet, Sunday, 05 September 1999, 19:08 GMT]
The funerals of PLOTE leaders, Ilango and Vino who were killed in a claymore mine blast on September 2, were held this afternoon in Vavuniya. The leader of the PLOTE, Mr. Mr. Tharmalingam Siddarthan, speaking to the gathering said that if murders of this kind continued the minority Tamils in Sri Lanka would be reduced to a great extent.

The funeral was held at the Uma Maheswaran cemetry in Kovilkulam.

Haribabu, the second in command of PLOTE's military wing said that contrary to what PLOTE's enemies thought the killing of three PLOTE leaders had not confounded the growth or development of the organisation.

G.T.Linaganathan former Chairman of Vavuniya Urban Council, Ganesh Senthil and Kingsley Robert also addressed the gathering.

The bodies of Ilango and Vino were taken in a procession to Kovilkulam and placed at the Uma Maheswaran Cemetery for the public and the members of PLOTE to pay their last respects.

Then the body of Ilango was taken to Rambaikulam cemetery for burial while the body of Vino was taken to Kovilkulam cemetery for cremation.

The funeral of Manikkadasan, the PLOTE's military wing leader who was also killed in the blast will be held tomorrow.
