Girl Slain with Isaipiriya in SL Military Captivity IdentifiedSpecial to Salem-News.com
The horror of genocide reverberates as family learns the truth.
(SALEM, Ore.) - A girl seen in photographs held captive together with LTTE journalist Shoba (Isaippiriyaa) by the genocidal military of Sri Lanka and later seen slain, has been identified as 19-year-old Ushalini Gunalingam from Yoakapuram, Mallaavi in Vanni, news sources in Ki’linochchi.
The young woman was not a LTTE fighter, although she had been recruited by the movement in 2008 for a few months, according to the relatives of the victim. But, the family had lost her during a chaotic displacement in the beginning of May 2009.
Her parents, searching for their lost daughter, have been complaining the presidential commission, without any outcome.
Now the photos released in public domain on the Internet have reached the family establishing the fate of the missing girl, as she has been identified.
The 53 Division of Sri Lanka Army reportedly captured Isaipiriya. The SL Defence Ministry had earlier claimed that the 53 Division had killed Isaipiriya at battlefront.
Isaipiriya was a journalist, and an on-air personality. She was not a combatant.
The killings of the two are part of a large-scale massacre committed with genocidal intent.
