Gota's acid attack: Maheswaran’s brother missing


The whereabouts of assassinated UNP Jaffna District  parliamentarian Thiagarajah Maheswaran’s brother, who was the victim of an acid  attack, remained a mystery as at yesterday. Maheswaran’s brother, Thiagarajah Thuwarakeswaran (47), was  attacked by Sri Lankan military with acid near the historic Nallur Kovil, where he went with his two  sons for a special ‘pooja’ on account of his elder son’s ninth birthday on  Saturday, Although some reports stated that Thuwarakeswaran had been  admitted to the Jaffna General Hospital, Acting Director of the hospital Dr. Sri  Bawanandarajah however told that he was not admitted there. Colombo National Hospital Director Dr. Anil Jasinha said he was  not brought there. Kalubowila Hospital Director Asela Gunawardena too said no  such patient had been admitted. The police, too, claimed they were not aware of  his whereabouts, but they were trying to trace the attackers. It appears that  for security reasons his whereabouts were being kept a secret. In his statement to the police, Thuwarakeswaran has said that he  and his two sons, after attending the ceremony at the Nallur Kovil were walking  towards their vehicle when two men, riding a motorcycle, came near him and threw  something on his back and he felt an intense burning sensation. The attackers  had been wearing red helmets. The victim has also said that he was a resident of Colombo 06  and from there he had first gone to Karainagar and then proceeded to Point Pedro  for a ceremony and on Saturday morning went to Nallur Kovil with his two sons.]]>
