The Eelam People’s Democratic Party (EPDP) general secretary Douglas Devananda denied allegations that his party was connected to the rape and murder of a school girl in Punkuduthivu.
Rejecting the allegations, Devananda said that his party members were constantly blamed for the murders that were taking place in the North-East, reports Ceylon Today.
“Those political parties who are against us are slinging mud at us to tarnish our political identity. These allegations are levelled against the party by our political opponents to stigmatise our image by connecting the gang rape and brutal murder to us,” said the EPDP general secretary.
