Prabhakaran's body found - Army Chief [Updated]
Commander of Sri Lanka Army General Sarath Fonseka
has confirmed that the body of V.Prabhakaran, psychopathic leader of
world's most barbaric terrorist outfit Liberation Tigers of Tamil
Eelam (LTTE) has been found short while ago (May 19). According to
the defence sources, the LTTE leader who has ordered thousands of
Tamil youth to give up their lives for him has tried to save his
life until the last moment.
The 4th Vijayabahu Regiment(4 VIR) troops led by
Lt. Colonel Rohitha Aluvihare under the 53 Division commanded by Major General Kamal Goonarathne, have found the bullet ridden body of the
terrorist leader lying on the bank of the Nanthikadal lagoon.
According to our defence correspondent at Wanni, the body has been
positively identified as Prabakaran's by MP Vinayagamoorthi
Muralitharan and Daya Master.
Ironically, Interpol wanted terrorist K.
Padmanathan alias KP this morning told pro LTTE media that the LTTE
leader was safe and sound. With the news appeared on media,
thousands of Tamil civilians living in Colombo capital joined
celebrations of the security forces' victory saying that the curse
placed on the Tamil population was finally removed.
Tamil people at Wellawatta took to the
streets celebrating the news on hearing the death of Prabhakaran.(19th May, 2009).
