Mulliwaikkal which had become a legend and where bodies of thousands of Genocide victims were buried is being excavated on the guise of searching for the Gold alleged to have been buried. Yesterday also police undertook an excavation there in search of LTTE’s Gold.
Mulliwaikkal is the site of the final war between the Sri Lankan security forces and the LTTE. The guns of the LTTE were also silenced at this now legendary location. Thousands of people and LTTE fighters were cold bloodedly murdered on this soil. Several were made to disappear. Tamil people surrendered to the Army after burying their killed relatives on that soil. After the war Mulliwaikkal is being revered as a holy soil by Tamil people of Eeelam all over the world. Memorials also had been erected there and homage paying events held.
Saying the Gold belonging to LTTE had been buried in several places, excavations had been done by STF, Police and Army in the past at places like, Mulaitheevu, Puthukudiyiruppu, Suthanthirapuram, and Ampalavanpokkanai.
The STF started excavation in Mulliwaikkal on January 17th this year. Following water surging out the excavation was abandoned. Again on 5.2.2018, STF failed to find anything. Yesterday and day before yesterday also unsuccessful excavations were carried out there. Land was excavated to resemble a pond, but again search had to be abandoned. Police said only lime stones were found underground.
