Two men who attempted to lay a live wire from a street lamp post to the nearby lagoon at Thirukedeeswaran in Jaffna – Colombo main highway were electrocuted and their bodies recovered by Mannar Police. 

The deceased M. Mahendran (45) was a resident of Adampan and a father of three children while the other Anthonipillai Devasankaer (37) a resident of Murippu also a father of three children.
