Man in white van kidnaps ex-wife

7 March 2011 10:09 pm - 14     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


A man, who had returned after ten years in Canada, allegedly kidnapped his ex-wife in Jaffna, after going in a white van to grab her, and later killed her, the Chavakachcheri Police said.

The suspect, who was taken into police custody, had hired the white van in Wellawatte and gone to Chavakachcheri in Jaffna, where he had taken his wife and the fifteen year old son by force and beaten his wife and then killed her.

It had transpired that the suspect had left Jaffna for Canada ten years ago after separating from his wife. He is said to have done business during his stay in Canada. He had returned to Sri Lanka last December and tried to get custody of his son. But all his attempts had failed.

The murdered woman has been identified as Kugadasan Chandani (38), a resident of Misale.

The victim’s body had been found by a group of soldiers yesterday; her face had been mutilated.

Police sources said that the suspect’s mistress (who is a nurse attached to Jaffna Hospital) and the driver of the van had also been taken into custody, together with the van.

    What a coincidence : neatly timed for International Women's Day to "liberate" the woman!

    Good that culprits identified and nabbed. If not the whole world (especially US & Europe) will point fingers at security forces or majority.
