Funeral of Yogarasa Thines takes place amid heavy security presence in Vadamaradchi

The funeral of the Tamil man shot dead by Sri Lankan police took place in his Vadamaradchi hometown this morning.

The last rites of Yogarasa Thines were attended by hundreds and took place without incident, although high numbers of special task force troops and police convoys had been deployed around Vadamaradchi East following days of tension between locals and security forces.
