Two former aides of Prabhakaran identified his body

Vinayagamoorthi Muralitharan alias Karuna, who was the Eastern commander of the LTTE before he fell out with Prabhakaran in 2004, and Daya Master, who surrendered to the army recently, were taken by the Government to Puthumatalan to identify the bullet-ridden body of Prabhakaran.

"The body is of Prabhakaran's... there is no doubt about this... Though I am bit saddened that he is no more but the fact is he never listened to anyone. He always believed that violence is the only solution," Karuna, who is now a federal minister said.

"It is the same, there is no change in his body. He met with this fate for his own deeds," he said.

The Defence Ministry said "the body has been positively identified as Prabhakaran's by MP Vinayagamoorthi Muralitharan and Daya Master."


Karuna said he wants to personally meet Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi to tell them why the LTTE killed Rajiv Gandhi.

"I want to personally explain to Priyanka and Rahul Gandhi why their father Rajiv was assassinated by the LTTE," he said.
Karuna said he wants to meet Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi as he has voiced concern for the Lankan Tamils.
