LTTE woman commits suicide

by Norman Palihawadana
The Island


A woman LTTE cadre in a camp at Kilinochchi, Kalidas (17), had committed suicide by swallowing a cyanide capsule due to frustration, police sources in the North said yesterday (1).

Vavuniya police said her body was sent to her parents, who live in Vavuniya, three days after she had died.

They said the parents did not wish to make any statement to the police but an autopsy was performed in Vavuniya where it was revealed that she died of cyanide poisoning.

They also said there was deepfrustration among women LTTE cadres as most of them are teenagers, who had been abducted by the LTTE from schools or villages in the North and East. A large number of girls had fled from the LTTE camps which had held them against their will.
