The Tamil Nadu police got to know about the escape only after the latest video surfaced in which the woman resembling Dwaraka, daughter of late LTTE chief Prabhakaran started doing the rounds.
Dwaraka, daughter of Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) chief late Velupillai Prabhakaran, and her husband Dhayabara Raj who were under security cover in Rameswaram’s Mandapam refugee camp, escaped to Sri Lanka secretly in an illegal ferry, according to DT next news report.
“After the escape of South Koreans and a Bulgarian from under the watch of State authorities, TN officials have now learned that a couple — believed to be once part of the LTTE intelligence wing — has escaped from Mandapam camp to Sri Lanka,” the report read.
It further said that the Tamil Nadu police officers came to know about the escape only after a video surfaced on social media in Lanka depicting the escaped woman as Dwaraka, daughter of slain LTTE leader Prabhakaran.
The Sri Lankan couple identified as K Dhayabara Raj and his wife Udayakala were in a Tamil Nadu refugee camp.
In 2016, Raj who was in Tiruchy special camp, had gone on an indefinite fast alleging illegal detention of his family at the special quarantine camp in Mandapam, Ramanathapuram. Following his request, the Madurai bench of Madras High Court directed the State to shift Raj, who’s wanted by Interpol, to Mandapam camp without 24×7 security cover.
“The two were supposed to be in Mandapam under the watch of the revenue department. But a video of Udayakala has now surfaced. In the video, she was described as Dwaraka, the daughter of the late LTTE leader Prabhakaran. It looks like she has launched a political party there in the Island nation,” sources told DT Next.
The news report suggested that the couple along with their three kids, seem to have left Mandapam camp secretly on an illegal ferry to their native nearly two years ago.
The DT Next report further says the duo were allegedly collecting huge money from local Tamils in Lanka promising to get the release of the latter’s relatives from the custody of Lankan forces after the civil war came to an end in the Island nation.
