The News Editor of the Uthayan newspaper published in Jaffna, Gunasundaram Kuganadan has traveled overseas for protection, it is learnt. Fifty seven year old Kuganadan was subjected to an inhumane assault on July 29th when he was on his way home after work. He was treated in hospital following the severe injuries sustained during the attack.
No arrests have yet been made with regard to the attack.

Kuganadan who worked full time from his office in Jaffna for two years during the period of the war was criticized by Tamil parties affiliated to the government. Many believe that Minister Douglas Devananda’s EPDP members were involved in the attack.

It is further learnt that Kuganadan and his wife have traveled to a European country seeking protection.
