Prabhakaran look-alike flees to India?

Defence authorities have found a look-alike of LTTE leader Velupillai Prabhakaran, who is said to be a Tamil businessman of New Chetty Street, Kotahena, according to a report in the local Sinhalese newspaper Divaina.

Following the exposure, the man identified as Sathgunaraja, a wealthy supplier of goods to the north, has fled to India, Divaina reports.

Yesterday afternoon (May 26), an unidentified group had shot and wounded his son, who is said to be in critical condition in hospital.

Sathgunaraja had reportedly visited the north frequently and had been a close friend of the LTTE leader, said the newspaper.
