Body of young Tamil man recovered from Jaffna well

The body of a young Tamil man bearing several wounds was recovered from a well in Jaffna on Thursday.

20-year-old Anantharaja Ananthababu was found dead in a field well in Sanguveli, with locals believing he was beaten and murdered then thrown in the well, judging by the state that his body was found in. 

Mr Ananthababu was reported missing on Thursday by his family, when he did not return home from his job as a labourer.

Manippay police are investigating the death, and Mr Ananthababu's body was handed over to Jaffna Teaching Hospital for post-mortem examinations at the order of the magistrate.
