The Courts have ordered that the funeral rites of the LTTE inmate who died after being transferred from the Vavuniya prison to the Mahara Prison be done within the jurisdiction of the Mahara Courts.

This order was issued by the courts after taking into consideration a request by the police who voiced concerns over a possible tense situation arising if the funerals rites were performed in Vavuniya which was the inmate’s hometown.

The post mortem was performed yesterday and the body has been placed in the morgue of the Ragama Hospital.

Police Media spokesperson SP Ajith Rohana stated that if the relatives of the deceased do not claim the body the funeral rites will be performed at the government's expense.
