Missing Tamil man found dead in Mannar

A Tamil man who had been reported as missing by his family in Mannar last week, has been found dead on Friday morning.

Thirty-year-old Antonis Nimal who is employed as an outreach officer at the Nanattan divisional council was last seen leaving for work on Saturday morning. His wife reported him missing to Murungan police on Saturday night as he had not returned home that evening.

His body was discovered earlier today by a roadside in the Naruvillikulam area by passers-by.

No information has been released with regards to the circumstances around his death, but Sri Lankan police have said that investigations are underway.

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
