The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) held a ceremony in Kilinochchi to commemorate thirty-two years since the death of the first female fighter of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).
The event, held at the TNA office in Kilinochchi, was headed by parliamentarian Sritharan, and attended by several other Tamil political figures, including former provincial minister T Kurukularajah.
The memorial event comes ahead of next month’s presidential elections on the island, where Tamil voters remain a crucial vote group.

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
