Stolen vehicles 'sold in north'

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 07 August 2002, 17:52 GMT]
People in the north of Sri Lanka should be wary of buying vehicles which could be stolen in the south of the island, the Vavuniya Magistrate warned. "People in Killinochchi, Mullaitivu, Jaffna, Vavuniya and Mannar should think twice before purchasing a vehicle from strangers, as a gang is operating in selling vehicles which have been stolen in the south," Mr.M.Illancheliyan, said at a murder inquest.

The inquest was held into the death of Thangaraja of Wattala in Colombo who had been employed as driver of a van. His body was recovered at Cheddikulam in Vavuniya area.

It transpired at the inquest that the deceased had been murdered by a group of people intending to steal the van. The van is reported to be missing. The wife of the deceased and the owner of the van gave evidence.
