Prabhakaran's body found - Army Chief [Updated]

Commander of Sri Lanka Army General Sarath Fonseka has confirmed that the body of V.Prabhakaran, psychopathic leader of world's most barbaric terrorist outfit Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) has been found short while ago (May 19). According to the defence sources, the LTTE leader who has ordered thousands of Tamil youth to give up their lives for him has tried to save his life until the last moment.

The 4th Vijayabahu Regiment(4 VIR) troops led by Lt. Colonel Rohitha Aluvihare under the 53 Division commanded by Major General Kamal Goonarathne, have found the bullet ridden body of the terrorist leader lying on the bank of the Nanthikadal lagoon. According to our defence correspondent at Wanni, the body has been positively  identified as Prabakaran's by MP Vinayagamoorthi Muralitharan and Daya Master.

Ironically, Interpol wanted terrorist K. Padmanathan alias KP this morning told pro LTTE media that the LTTE leader was safe and sound. With the news appeared on media, thousands of Tamil civilians living in Colombo capital joined celebrations of the security forces' victory saying that the curse placed on the Tamil population was finally removed.

The body of the terror chief Prabakaran was found on the bank of the Nanthikadal lagoon, by 53 Div troops commanded by Major General Kamal Goonarathne, on 19th May 2009.
