The priest had received two bullets on his head and according to police report he died instantly.

Thirukoanesvaram Temple is located inside the Fort Frederick, where the Trincomalee Government Agent’s office and the Gajaba Regiment of the Sri Lanka Army are located.

Sivashri Kugaraja Kurrukal had been the High Priest of one of the oldest Saiva Temple, ThiruKonesvaram for the last five years and according to the Media Centre for National Security (MCNS) he was highly respected by the Hindus as well as other religious communities living in the area. He had been maintaining a very cordial relationship with the law enforcement authorities in the district and had performed a great service in building peace and harmony among the different communities.

As u all know i want to go back to Sri Lanka, but as long as these killings are there my husband dont agree with me.

Common sense…over feelings….

God bless , Sivasri Kugarajah Kurukkal

    Religion is a puppet in politics these days…earlier it used to be the other way around when religion held more power than the rulers. In areas of strife anything that is a symbol of some substance becomes a target…so sad..may his soul rest in peace!
