Sri Lankan Special Task Force (STF) commandos who had sexually assaulted a 14-year-old Tamil girl Sunday, March 1, in Vellaaveli police division, again went to the girl’s house Monday between 8:00 p.m and 9:00 p.m where they assaulted her father first and then severely tortured her mother before killing and dumping her body in the well as punishment for complaining against the STF with Batticaloa police for raping her daughter.
The father was held bound while the commandos beat the mother to death, the neighbors said.
Vellaaveli police recovered the body of the mother with the help of neighbours and handed it over to Kaluvaangnchchikudi hospital.
The mother of the raped girl had earlier complained of the incident to Eastern Province Chief Minister, Sivanesathurai Chandrakanthan alias Pillayan.
The Chief Minister had reportedly said that he had no authority on security affairs directing her to take the matter to Vinayagamoorthy Muralitahran alias Karuna, member of parliament.
The STF commandos in Vellaaveli police division in Batticaloa sexually abused a 14-year-old Tamil girl in front of her mother during a cordon and search conducted Sunday early morning in Vallaaveli.
The medical officer who examined the girl admitted to Batticaloa Teaching Hospital confirmed that she had been sexually abused.
The STF commandos, having ordered all the men in the area to go to a temple, interrogated the women who were left alone in the houses collecting particulars about members of the family besides sexually abusing them.
