Former Deputy Minister Vinayagamurthi Muralitharan, commonly known as Karuna Amman, today completely denied reports quoting him as saying that slain LTTE supremo Velupillai Prabhakaran was captured alive and tortured by Sri Lankan troops before being killed.
Certain websites and Facebook pages had recently carried articles quoting Karuna Amman as saying that Sri Lanka Army arrested Prabhakaran, handed him over to former President Mahinda Rajapaksa and also that he was tortured.
However, Muralitharan rejected the reports as attempts to discredit him and gain political mileage.
It is reported that he was warned by the Sri Lanka’s top military and Gotha to shut up or face death as he can be killed and blame can be easily planted saying ”LTTE did it” and the world will accept it. The New President and Ranil are mum about the threat to Karuna’s live by SL Military as they too have to support the SL military who killed more than 40,000 Tamil Civilians in May 2009 and killed more than 1000 LTTE Leaders and their family members who surrendered with White Flag after UN negotiated the surrender.
Karuna helped the government military to kill the Tamil civilians in thousands and also is accused of killing Sinhala police officers after they surrendered to him when he was the head of Eastern province LTTE team.
Speaking to The Sunday Leader, Muralitharan said that both the General Secretary of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP), Anura Priyadharshana Yapa and General Secretary of United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) Susil Premajayantha had promised him that he will be enlisted in the SLFP national list. But last week the Mahinda group decided to dump Karuna and his name was not included in the national list. Most probably Mahinda will use Karuna as a scape goat and Karuna will face charges and will be punished for War Crimes.
It is also claimed that, Karuna after crossing over from LTTE to Sri Lankan government was issued false passport by the SL Government to fly to London and was allowed to enjoy the live. He was eventually deported by the British immigration officers and than he was made a deputy minister and sLFP Secretary by Mahinda since than Karuna was seen with beautiful women and dancing in night clubs. It is rumored that the Sri Lankan Intelligence services hold videos of his private live and records of his notorious live after his crossing over to Sri Lankan forces and in fear of them being released Karuna has decided to eat his words..
When LNW inquired from the former UPFA parliamentarian Karuna Amman’s secretary as why Karuna Amman did not get nomination from the Batticaloa district she said Karuna Amman got nomination bus he rejected the offer. She said since it is difficult for Mahinda Rajapaks ato contest and win the elction he rejected the nominations. She further said that Mahinda Rajapaksa is not able to compete with the Tamil National Alliance due to the racist campaign he promoted against the minority community therefore Tamil people disdains him.
It is claimed that Rajapakshe’s men killed more than 150 LTTE Leaders who were in the secret camp soon after Mahinda lost the Presidential election.
It is also claimed by some that the last week White Van and three army men in it were sent by Army commander who is a close associate of Gotha and it was done to gain publicity and votes for Mahinda in the forthcoming election.
Deputy Minister Vinayagamoorthi Muralidharan (Karuna Amman) said that he has tangible evidence of a number one murderer who has been granted nomination for the forthcoming parliamentary election by the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA). He accused the Secretary of the UPFA of having granted nomination to this individual according to his exclusive will. He suggested that this “individual is directly connected to the assassinations of MP Joseph Pararajasingham, Nadaraja Raviraj, Chandranehru and Professor Ravindranath and that neither President Maithripala Sirisena nor Mahinda Rajapaksa had anything to do with it.”
