Trainee SLA soldier raped and murdered

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 10 January 2001, 14:45 GMT]
A Sri Lanka army trainee was found raped and killed Tuesday near his detachment in Mirusuvil in Jaffna. SLA military Police sources said that a lance corporal identified as Wijeyananda and a private have been arrested in connection with the rape and murder. The trainee soldier, K.R.K Karunaratna, was reported missing after a party at the armoured corps unit in Mirusuvil on 6 January, according to the Military Police.

The trainee's decomposing body was found in Odduveli in the same area Tuesday following a search.

The MP alleged that the some soldiers who got drunk at the party had raped the trainee Karunaratna and then murdered him. They had then dragged away and dumped his body in a drain in Odduweli near their detachment.

Jaffna magistrate A.Premsankar and Jaffna Judicial Medical Officer Dr.S.Srirangeswaran Wednesday visited the venue of the murder and the place where the trainee soldier's body was found.

The JMO informed that the judge that there were no adequate facilities at the Jaffna Teaching Hospital to examine the body of the trainee soldier as it was in an advanced state of decomposition.

The judge then directed that the body be sent to Colombo for medical examination.
