Mannaar Bishop condemns assassination of Nakuleswaran
Bishop of Mannaar Rt Rev Rayappu Joesph has condemned the killing of Krishnaswamy Nakuleswaran, a father of two and a former LTTE member and police constable of Tamil Eelam Police. Unknown gunmen shot and killed Mr Nakuleswaran at the premises of his new house Wednesday night. The victim, aged 40 had been released after so-called rehabilitation in the Sri Lanka Army custody in December 2012. Nakuleswarn’s wife, a teacher, on Thursday said her husband had no enemies.
Mannaar Bishop in his statement said that the justice has failed in the island and armed men have gone on rampage creating tension and fear among the people in the North.
The international community should come forward to put a stop to this killing spree and help the Tamil people to get justice and liberation, the Bishop has further stated.
Two persons in civil, believed to be members of the SL military intelligence unit, had entered his house and shot him through his ears on Wednesday evening while he was engaged in brick making with his relatives to construct his house under the Indian aid at Ve’l'laangku’lam in Mannaar district.
