Sydney: Sri Lankan security forces killed the Tamil Tigers’ finance chief during clashes in the north-east of the island nation, the defence ministry said.
Subarathnam Selvatureiy died in fighting east of Puthukkudiyirippu, a garrison town captured from the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) last week, the ministry said in a statement late on Wednesday.
Thamilendi was a high-profile LTTE leader and handled the LTTE’s bank accounts, tax collecting and all other matters relating to the outfit’s finances, the ministry said.
