Swampillai Jesuthasan of Uyilankulam, Mannar, who had recently escaped from the 3rd assassination attempt said that the reason behind targeting me for the 3rd time is not known.
Elaborating further, he said that, I left LTTE in 2004 married and living an open life with children now. I am not living in hiding or had not answered the summons of the police. Police see me daily.
I openly asked the police who came for inquiries after the incident, in front of an MP, to say what I have done wrong and arrest me, or are there any accusations against me. They did not give any answer.
It gives me much fear, being targeted continuously. I escaped from the attack of armed men for the first time in 2006. Then, those who came to my house with an intention of killing me, shot my brother dead, on a wrong identification. This is the third attempt on my life.
Some civilian clothed persons brought my friend in hand cuff to my house had fired shots and escaped. It is said that a police vehicle led the killers to my home. The police who are very close to my house were informed of the incident at 9.00 p.m., they came there only at around 11.00 p.m. They took away with them the hand cuff and rifle rounds left behind by the assailants, he said.
