Suresh Premachandran, former Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Jaffna district parliamentarian, accused Eealm People’s Democratic Party (EPDP) men, an ally of the ruling United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA), for the abduction and killing of Thiruchelvam Kapilthev, a 17-year-old student of Chaavakachcheari Hindu College in a report released Sunday in Jaffna. Suresh Premachandran accused the police to have willfully ignored the statements of the three students arrested and detained in this case where the involvement of EPDP members is mentioned.

Suresh Premachandran, in his report, said that the police are protecting the killers of Kapilthev in the context of the forthcoming parliamentary election.

He further said that it had been found that it was EPDP men who had abducted and killed Kapilthev and accused the police for not taking prompt action to arrest them though he had been abducted two weeks ago.

Suresh Premachandran called upon the police to make public the truth and to take the suspects into custody immediately, in the report.

Meanwhile, Mavai Senathirajah, former TNA parliamentarian of Jaffna district had condemned the killing of Kapilthev and to arrest the killers at the earliest, Sunday.

Chaavakachcheari police recovered Saturday the body of the 17-year-old student who was abducted from his house in Madaththadi in Chaavakachcheari North on 14 March for a ransom of 30 million rupees, from the backyard of a house on Dutch Road in Chaavakachcheari.

The body was recovered from the plantain garden in the backyard of one of the three friends of the victim arrested and detained in Jaffna prison.
