Colombo, 27 December: A
completely a new organization, Sennan Padai, (Sennan Force),
hitherto unknown, has claimed responsibility for the killing of
Joseph Pararajasingham, a Tamil National Alliance Member of
Parliament, killed on 25 December in Batticalao. This claim
strikes resemblance to that of another earlier similar claim
made by a relatively unknown "Mannar District Resurgence People
Force," for the killing of the 13 Sri Lankan Navy troops on 23
December in Pesalai, Mannar.
According to "Asian Tribune" Sri
Lanka based correspondents, it is learnt that handbills claiming
responsibility for the killings by Sennan Padai were widely
distributed all over the Batticalao and Amparai districts.
Senan Padai has also extended their warnings to the other TNA
members of Parliament viz Jayananthamoorthy, Hariyendran,
Sampanthan, Thurairatnasingham, Kanagasabai, Pathmanathan, and
Thangeswary, to resign from their parliamentary membership
forthwith and lead a peaceful life.
The relatively unknown organization also has warned all those
who participate in the protest rallies and those who lead those
rallies organized by the LTTE desist from participation
The full text of the handbill released for distribution in
the East of Sri Lanka is as follows:
Beloved residents of the East.

has been eradicated. Sennan Padai claims responsibility for the
murder of Joseph Pararajasingham, the traitor of our Tamil
