LTTE TERRORISTS SEVERE HEAD OF A HOME GUARD NEAR TRINCOMALEE AND RUNS AWAY WITH THE HEAD

By Walter Jayawardhana

Waiting terrorists of the LTTE in the dark caught and dragged a home guard attached to a police post, severed his head with a sharp knife and took the head away in Trincomalee said Brigadier Prasad Samarasinghe the Sri Lanka Army spokesman.

He said the victim in the ghastly act of the Tamil Tigers was a 27 year old home guard named Nissanka Rajith Bandara who walked away from his police post about 100 yards away for a call of nature at night when he met his killers.

When his colleagues in the police post at Siri Mangalapura Police post got alarmed when Nissanka was not returning they searched for him in the nearby jungle at night and discovered his headless corpse.

This is the first time Tamil Tigers have run away with a severed head of one of their victims.
The murdered home guard left the police post about 10.50 at night and the terrorists have been waiting to catch him in the jungle. There were signs that he was dragged into the jungle about hundred yards before committing the murder.


Seru Nuwara Police station said the incident has been informed to the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission.
