Ex LTTE eastern commander and Deputy Minister Vinayagamoorthi Muralitharan alias Karuna Amman claims that the leader of the defeated Tamil tigers, Velupillai Prabhakaran, committed suicide by shooting himself with a firearm.

Responding to a question made by a reporter during an interview on an Indian TV channel, Muralitharan also revealed that Prabhakaran’s wife and the daughter were killed by shell-fire during the final stage of the war.

While praising Prabhakaran for his war strategies, Muralitharan however asserted that the LTTE was defeated owing to its unsuccessful war tactics. 

“If the LTTE had fought a guerilla battle, it would not have lost,” he added.
