First massacre by Indian troops remembered in Jaffna

The Pirampadi massacre in Kokkuvil, when over fifty Tamil civilians were shot dead or crushed with an armoured vehicle by Indian Peacekeeping Forces (IPKF) was remembered in the village on Saturday, 32 years after the massacre.

The massacre is claimed to be the first of many by Indian troops during their occupation of the Tamil homeland in the late eighties.
