2 TMVP members gunned down by unidentified gunmen - Kaththankudi

Two TMVP (Tamil Makkal Viduthalai Pulikal) members were gunned down by unidentified gunmen in Kaththankudi town today, May 22. The victims were identified as Shanthan, the party's chief organizer of Kaththankudi, and Parasuraman, sources said.

According to available information the victims were riding a motorbike when they were shot by the gunmen in front of the Kaththankudi bus stand around 11.55 a.m.

Two more civilians who received injuries in this shooting incident were also admitted to the Batticaloa hospital, sources further said.

The TMVP was formed as a Tamil political party by the former eastern leader of the LTTE, Karuna Amman. Since then the party members have been fighting for survival against violence unleashed on them by the LTTE terrorists as well as the hateful propaganda campaigns engineered by pro-terror NGO activists
