Torture victim admitted to Jaffna hospital

[TamilNet, Thursday, 19 March 1998, 23:59 GMT]
Sinnavan Mahendirajah, 36 was admitted to the Jaffna hospital today for internal damage caused by torture while he was in the custody of the Sri Lankan army Chankanai in Jaffna. He was arrested by the local army on March 3 and was released on March 12.

Sinnavan had been threatened by the SLA soldiers who had arrested him that he should not reveal what they had done to him to any one.

Fearing death, Sinnavan had attempted to treat his severe internal pains with locally obtained Ayurvedic oils. But his conditioned had deteriorated, compelling his family to rush him to the Jaffna hospital for treatment.
