Thamil Chelvam’s widow has told a newspaper that the white flag story is totally false.
She has informed this in an interview with the weekend ‘Rivira’ newspaper with regard to the story that LTTE leaders who came with white flags to surrender during the war were shot dead by the Security Forces. Thami Chelvam’s widow Shashirekha has said that the LTTE leaders were killed in clashes with security forces during the last few days of the war. Participating in a programme telecast by the ITN earlier she said that the security forces treated her very well when she came to surrender. She said that the responsibility of the Tamil diaspora is to assist the government at a time when it’s building the country instead of attempting to create problems.
