Prabhakaran made two last-minute attempts to flee: Navy
T V Sriram Colombo, May 20 (PTI) LTTE chief Velupillai Prabhakaran made two last-minute attempts to escape to India or Malaysia, but these came too late as the Sri Lankan Navy had put up a effective naval blockade by then. These failures left no option for Prabhakaran, who had earlier hoodwinked and outmaneuvered the Sri Lankan security aparatus, to stay put in the northern war zone and fight to the last.

Prabhakaran made these attempts as Sri Lankan forces made major advances into the rebel-held territory this year, naval spokesman D K Dasanayake told PTI. "He had attempted to flee to India or Malaysia but he couldn't as the Navy has strengthened its vigilance," he said. Media reports had earlier said that the LTTE leader may try escape to a South Asian country thorugh sea route.

Prabhakaran's body was yesterday recovered near a lagon in Puthumathalan in the northern region. PTI.
