The latest victim of the LTTE's killing spree is reported from Batticaloa today (Friday the 28th of July) at 6.30a.m.
At the Thundanweli junction in the Batticaloa area the residents informed the police about the killing of a youth this morning.
The victim has been identified as Wimaladasa Dewaruban (26), a resident in Kalmunai area
Dewaruban who is 26 years of age had for quite some time been one of the "chief" collectors of "extortion money".
Large numbers of civilians believe that continuous disputes over the large sum of money hitherto extorted, has led to the killing of Dewaruban. It is gradually emerging that amongst the LTTE cadres many are strongly motivated to gather large sum of "extorted money" belonging the organization, through deceit.
The regional leadership and the hierarchy it seems are incapable of preventing this "lust for wealth "by its own cadres.
