‘Tortured and killed’ LTTEr surfaces in India

14 May 2014 01:38 am - 33     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


One of the former prominent LTTE cadres, said to have been tortured and killed by the Sri Lankan security forces in 2009 as claimed by many local and international NGOs, was among the arrested person by the Tamil Nadu police in Dhanushkodi in India, when they entered India without valid documents, defence sources revealed.

Indian media reported that ten Sri Lankan Tamils, including five children, illegally landed at Arichamunai, off Dhanushkodi, Tamil Nadu, India in the early hours on May 5. One of the suspects identified by the Indian police as K. Thayapararaja, 33 a computer engineer in Jaffna had come with wife Uthayakala, son Diyaroan 12, daughters Dilany 6, Dilshiya 4.

Accordingly, several prominent NGOs including University Teachers of Human Rights (UTHR – J), the Australian Government Refugee Review Tribunal and several pro-LTTE groups had earlier stated that the Sri Lanka Security forces tortured and killed Thayapararaja.

The report titled War without Witnesses had claimed that Tamil Engineer working for a US Charity ((ITTPO) was extra judicially executed near Colombo. The European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights report 2010 (page 32) quotes from the University Teachers of Human Rights Report and published a Report on the same lines.

Thayapararaja had told media in Tamil Nadu that he had worked as an Assistant Lecturer at the University of Peradeniya in Kandy after graduation from the Peradeniya University in 2005 as an Engineer. The rest of his story covered how he lost contact with his parents and 3 sisters, that his family was in Kilinochchi and how he spent a month at a Vavuniya camp and decided to flee to Tamil Nadu.

Defence sources also alleged that Thayapararaja and his wife Uthayakala had also duped numerous persons from Mullativu, Mannar and Colombo, collecting millions of rupees promising safe passage and employment in London.

However she had not provided employment or returned their money. Many such victims from Wanni have handed a letter to the Indian Consulate in Jaffna requesting the Indian consulate to intervene in this case and provided them justice. It is also unfolding that both husband and wife had close links with some NGOs operating from London with links to LTTE. They had allegedly used this is a connection to promise lucrative jobs and operated the racket with pro-LTTE elements pretending to help Tamils.

“There were several complaints about this husband and wife to the Criminal Investigations Department and several police stations and we would work with the Indian police to bring down both the suspects soon, as CID is currently conducting separate inquiries against these suspects,” a senior police official said.

    Do a scan on Canada and UK and you will find more and more 'murdered' LTTE cadres living in style over there with the right to vote!!!

    Natetan Wednesday, 14 May 2014 02:04 AM

    Can UN hold an enquiry into this as well ? The truth always win someday!

    Observer with Sense Wednesday, 14 May 2014 08:42 AM

    I was looking for tiger sympathizers to comment.

    This is the only comment from a so called Tiger sympathizer.

    You cannot hoodwink your own people by saying these. The tiger informants are well received by the Tamil community. The good recent example is the Gobi's case. .

    Truth will come out slowly, then there will be no place for the NGO and Cameron and Harper to hide.

    Public Wednesday, 14 May 2014 03:12 AM

    Why not send an immediate official report to UN? Not only in India, also in European countries, Canada and even in Sri Lanka the missing tiger cadres may emerge one by one very soon. Tigers can not hide all the time in the jungle, they have to come out when their backs are getting dried.

    Ramesh Wednesday, 14 May 2014 03:36 AM

    Dear brother Natetan, How is it possible?, UN led by Pillai are the one who inspire to fabricate such stories.
    Even if you find it and put it on their faces, they will deny

    James Corea Wednesday, 14 May 2014 04:52 PM

    Messenger for UN Wednesday, 14 May 2014 03:55 AM

    If you do a Count of All Illegal Immigrants in USA, Canada, UK ( specially ) and other Countries that will be equal to the so called missing Count claimed by UN and the HYPOCRITE

    Why not UN pass a Resolution on these countries to give an account of people who have entered their country with out proper VISA and documents.

    Fair N Square Wednesday, 14 May 2014 05:09 PM

    Way too many claimed bogus political Asylum IN most countries..Canada has a loop-hole..IT accepts forged ID,s B/C's and even PASSPORTS.. stating that they understand the use of forged docs to exit through the ONLY airport in SL...IF the Canadian gov's (IRB) Immigration and Refugee Board compares notes with the SL authorities..more such "TORTURED AND KILLED" people would surface... BY this what the world at large knows is that Canada has been duped and their Immigration, welfare and more systems have been abused....

    There was one guy who claimed refugee status in Canada on four different names and cross from 4 different borders, with 4 sets of finger prints( the same) .. He collected welfare from the govt monthly and lived a lavish life..until he got caught for a minor violation and his finger print scanned... by the RCMP. so much for Canadian security...

    Naalluran Wednesday, 14 May 2014 05:14 PM

    Al the comments are like parrots find something wrong with Tamils. These so-called persons do not say why all of them are staying in other countries, when they could stay in their own country. This is a sinister plan by them.

    Down South Wednesday, 14 May 2014 05:17 PM

    Canada is a heaven for LTTE and their stooges.

    kum Wednesday, 14 May 2014 04:13 AM

    They were working with forces and government so far. They fled to India because people are after them.

    kaush Wednesday, 14 May 2014 06:08 PM

    kumar Thursday, 15 May 2014 11:59 AM

    The Indian Police should not release them. They are spies send by Sri Lankan Army.

    perera Wednesday, 14 May 2014 04:58 AM

    navi pillai and human rights watch and amnesty international should be told and then ridiculed

    perera Wednesday, 14 May 2014 05:01 AM

    a UN international inquiry is needed here H HA HA!

    shan Wednesday, 14 May 2014 05:20 AM

    Any comments from Bishop Rayappu Joseph about the missing persons?

    migara Wednesday, 14 May 2014 11:49 AM

    He must have paid the Cops in Sri Lanka for an easy passage out.. Smart dude.Stupid he did not continue to Cannada !

    Dumindu Wednesday, 14 May 2014 05:32 AM

    Like this one day Velupillai Prabhakaran will also surface. When LTTE started the war in 2006 to overcome the problems created by the 2004 peace agreement it also already planned the Geneva fiasco we faced during the last few years, to expose the political backwardness of Sinhalese dominated Srilankan govts. Now the cycle has turned full circle b'cos of the short sighted leaders of the present govt willingly endorsed by the Sinhalese people who are being misled by the machinations of the LTTE as well as baseless Sinhalese mythology. Why should we pay a price for these any more?

    pj Wednesday, 14 May 2014 12:00 PM

    He is 33, 12 year old daughter, Computer Engineer. Does it make any sense
