A Tamil youth has been hospitalised after being severely beaten by Sri Lankan intelligence officers in Vadamaradchi, Jaffna. Image
The youth was stopped by #lka intelligence officers near his home in Vettrilaikeni while returning from work yesterday evening. The officers asked him where he had come from and where he was going, to which the youth asked why he had to explain his presence on a public road.
The intelligence officers immediately replied that the youth had to be investigated and took him to the nearby cemetery. The officers proceeded to beat the youth.
The youth’s mother found him beaten and in tears after neighbours informed her that her son had been taken by intelligence officers. When she asked the officers why they had beaten her son, they denied having beaten him. The mother took the youth to Jaffna Teaching Hospital.
