Two houses set ablaze by paramilitaries in Batticaloa

[TamilNet, Monday, 07 August 2006, 17:08 GMT]
Two houses located along Batticaloa-Kaluwankerni main road were burnt down by a paramilitary group working with Sri Lanka State security forces around 6.30 a.m., Monday. One house belonged to Mylvaganam Arumugam who is the sister of Gnanatheepan, the paramilitary Karuna group cadre who surrendered to the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) after killing five Karuna group members, including Iniyabarathy, last year.

Other house destroyed by the fire belonged to family which has four school going children, sources said.

Complaint has been lodged with the Eravur Police regarding the arson.

The arsonists came in a white coloured van and motor bikes to commit the crime, sources said.

Two sisters of Puhalventhan who escaped from the Karuna paramilitary group with Gnanatheepan were killed on 8 December last year.
