Sri Lanka Rubbishes Claim Of LTTE Chief Prabhakaran Alive


Colombo: Sri Lanka has dismissed the claims that LTTE Chief Prabhakaran was alive.

“It is confirmed that he was killed on 19 May 2009. The DNA has proved it,” said Colonel Nalin Herath, Sri Lanka’s defence ministry spokesperson.

Lanka’s reaction came a day after Pazha Nedumaran, a noted nationalist leader in Tamil Nadu, claimed that LTTE (Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam) leader ‘is doing well and a conducive atmosphere prevails for him to appear now.’

LTTE supremo, Velupillai Prabhakaran, known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan Army in 2009, is alive and well, Tamil Nadu nationalist leader Pazha Nedumaran has claimed.

During a press conference, Pazha Nedumaran, claimed that prefixed the international (political) atmosphere and fierce opposition to Rajapaksas by the Sinhalese people in Sri Lanka has created the right conditions for the leader of the Eelam Tamils, Prabhakaran to emerge.

The leader of Eelam Tamils, Prabhakaran, had been accused of plotting the death of former prime minister of India Rajiv Gandhi.

Asserting that the LTTE leader is doing well, Nedumaran said the announcement would end ‘planned’ suspicions spread about him. Prabhakaran is all set to soon announce a plan for the dawn of the Eelam Tamils in Sri Lanka, he said.
