During the second day of cross examination yesterday, murdered British aid worker Khuram Shaikh’s girlfriend requested Court to consider her frame of mind when giving her statement in the immediate aftermath of the killing.

Victoria Alexandrona said this when the defence counsel was repeatedly referring to her previous statement.

She said she was giving her evidence under oath and as such whatever she was saying was nothing but the truth.

The trial into the killing of British tourist Khuram Shaikh at a Tangalle resort was taken up before High Court Judge Rohini Walgama.

Ms. Alexandrona told Court that though she now identified the suspect, who assaulted her at the poolside, she had not pointed him out at the identification parade out of fear for her life.

Responding to questions asked by the counsel for the third accused, former Tangalle PS Chairman Kalinga Indratissa, she said she was gang raped by those who killed her boyfriend Khuram and that there were bruises on her body.

Ms. Alexandrona said did not fear for her life now because she had been provided with security.

    People who commit crimes like these should be sent for life. Politicians and their siblings are so arrogant and taking the law into their own hands.
    Sooner or later everyone falls from the grace. It is a natural law : It is called entropy.
