 Suresh Premachandran accused the police to have willfully ignored the statements of the three students arrested and detained in this case where the involvement of EPDP members is mentioned.Suresh Premachandran, in his report, said that the police are protecting the killers of Kapilthev in the context of the forthcoming parliamentary election. He further said that it had been found that it was EPDP men who had abducted and killed Kapilthev and accused the police for not taking prompt action to arrest them though he had been abducted two weeks ago. Suresh Premachandran called upon the police to make public the truth and to take the suspects into custody immediately, in the report.

Meanwhile, Mavai Senathirajah, former TNA parliamentarian of Jaffna district had condemned the killing of Kapilthev and to arrest the killers at the earliest, Sunday.
