Slain Tamil Tiger chief Vellupillai Prabhakran’s ancestral house in the Jaffna peninsula has been demolished, a Tamil politician said on Thursday.

M K Sivajilingam from the Tamil National Liberation Alliance told HT over phone from Jaffna that Prabhakaran’s house, located in Valvettithurai, about 30 km from Jaffna town, was “gradually" demolished in the last few weeks.

Prabhakaran was killed on May 18.

“The house was slowly demolished by security forces in the last few weeks as it was becoming a tourist attraction. I saw it on April 21 and again today. It is a pile of rubble," Sivajilingam said.

He said the government wanted to remove everything related to Prabhakaran. “I had written to President Mahinda Rajapaksa and told him that the house was being destroyed.

Sivajilingam added that only portions of the boundary wall remained.
