I was shocked to see a photograph which had LTTE cheif Prabhakaran watching the report claiming his death on Times Now channel. I checked in the website and got confused if Prabahkaran is really alive!

ltte“Prabhakaran alive” is what the pro-LTTE website — claimed on Tuesday. According to the website the Tamil Tigers’ supremo Velupillai Prabhakaran is still “alive and safe”. This came exactly a day after the Sri Lankan Army announced that it has killed the top rebel leader.

However, the website did not give the details of Prabhakaran’s location. “I wish to inform the global Tamil community distressed witnessing the final events of the war that our beloved leader Velupillai Prabhakaran is alive and safe… He (Prabhakaran) will continue to lead the quest for dignity and freedom for the Tamil people,” said S. Pathmanathan LTTE’s international relations head.

The Army had claimed Prabhakaran and his top aides came out of their last hiding place in a small convoy of van and an ambulance and tried to drive out of the war zone, but were gunned down.

Head of International Secretariat of the Intelligence wing of the LTTE, Arivazhakan, who reportedly contacted on Friday categorically denied the reports that the LTTE leader has been killed. Arivazhakan urged the global Tamil community not to trust the “engineered rumours,” being spread by the Government of Sri Lanka and its military establishment.

“Our beloved leader is alive,” he said and added that the LTTE leadership will make contact with its people at a suitable time in future.

“These rumours have been set afloat to confuse the global Tamil community which has been voicing support for the liberation of Tamil Eelam,” he further said.
