What Karuna Am­man said about Pottu Am­man is not cor­rect be­cause the lat­ter was def­i­nitely killed

Dis­miss­ing the claims made by for­mer MP Vinyaga­murthi Mu­ralitha­ran alias Karuna Am­man that Pottu Am­man is still alive, Field Mar­shal Sarath Fonseka told jour­nal­ists on Thurs­day that Pottu Am­man was killed dur­ing the fi­nal stages of the war.

Field Mar­shal Sarath Fonseka, who was the army com­man­der dur­ing the fi­nal stages of the war said LTTE strong­man Pottu Am­man killed him­self by ex­plod­ing a bomb when his es­cape at­tempt was foiled.

“What Karuna Am­man said about Pottu Am­man is not cor­rect be­cause the lat­ter was def­i­nitely killed. Even the body of Pottu Am­man’s wife was dis­cov­ered af­ter the war,” the Field Mar­shal said and added that this had been con­firmed by Ku­maran Path­manathan (KP) as well. “Karuna Am­man was never in­volved in the war against the LTTE af­ter he de­fected but was only taken to the North to iden­tify the bod­ies of LTTE lead­ers at Nandikadal,” he said.
