What happened to Pulithevan - 'Machan Puliee'

(Lanka-e-News, March 09, 2009, 1.30 PM) Our London sources say that the close relatives of LTTE's Peace Secretary chief S. Pulithevan have mourned the death of their high profile LTTE relative in Vanni recently.

As rumors spread in London that Pulithevan was killed by an attack of the Sri Lanka Army, 'Lanka-e-News' enquired about it from the military spokesman Brigadier Udaya Nanayakkara. He said that the security forces had not targeted Pulithevan and there were no information regarding his death.

Meanwhile, a non-LTTE source said that Pulithevan and two more leaders had tried to evade war and to go abroad. They have now been jailed by LTTE following the ploy was uncovered.

Pulithevan who acted a major role in LTTE during the ceasefire period has not made any statement to media for months.
