Colombo, May 22 (ANI): The Sri Lankan military spokesperson Brigadier Udaya Nanyakkara said that LTTE Supremo Prabhakaran’s body was cremated in Mullaithivu on Wednesday.
According to the military, his body was treated like any other terrorist.
Earlier, Sri Lankan Army sources had revealed that the Government was planning to bury Prabhakaran in an unmarked mass grave.
They said that the mass burial was being undertaken to prevent any sort of hero worship or memorial being built in the honour of Prabhakaran.
The bodies of Prabhakara, his wife Mathivadhani, elder daughter Dwaraka and younger son Balachandran were found and identified by the Sri Lankan army in the Nandikadal Lagoon. (ANI)
