[b] Colombo, 23 November, (Asian Tribune.com): [/b]The LTTE cadres brutally chopped the one hand of the person from Kilinochchi who voted in the last Presidential elections to Ranil Wickremasinghe, the UNP Presidential candidate.

The hand of the person was chopped publicly in Kilinochchi by the LTTE cadres in the presence of hundreds of onlookers.

According to a source, this punishment was meted out in public to scare others not to disobey the Aanai - edict of the LTTE in the future.

The said person from Kilinochchi voted at the cluster polling station for Kilinoichchi.

His vote was the only vote cast from Kilinochchi in the last Presidential election.

After the voting, he was contacted by the BBC correspondent and asked were you not afraid of voting?

He said boldly that voting was his right and he quipped “if anyone wants to take my life for voting let them take it.”
