It has been revealed that the murder of Kanapathipillai Udayakanthan has been committed by an armed group although the authorities have tried to imply that the murder was due to a private issue.
A former member of the LTTE, Udayakanthan’s body was found with stab wounds near the Hindu College in Bambalapitiya.
His helmet and keys to his motorbike were found near his body. The SIM card in his mobile phone had been de-activated at the time.
The Bambalapitiya Police found his motorbike in Wellawatte a few days later. Udayakanthan had left the LTTE in 2002 and traveled overseas and had returned to the country only two years ago.
