Sri Lankan Tamil murdered over love affair in UK

Alleged murder victim Suren Sivananthan had travelled thousands of miles to MK to be with the woman of his dreams. Sri Lankan-born Suren, 32, died just days after he arrived in the city to visit his girlfriend. His body was found near shops at Great Linford’s St Leger Drive early on Saturday morning (January 21). Unusually, police conducting the murder investigation have already referred themselves to IPCC for scrutiny.

It is understood a call was made to local police to report concerns for Suren’s safety some 16 hours before he died. The tragedy has devastated the city’s Sri Lankan community, who have paid tribute to the “fine, upstanding young man.” They say Suren had travelled from Canada specifically to visit his girlfriend, who is said to have been married previosuly. Suren lived in Canada and had taken time off from his job to fly to Milton Keynes.

It is understood his body was found by a shopworker who had gone along to open up the nearby Co-op store. Four people, one of them a teenager were arrested between Saturday and Tuesday and charged with murder . A member of MK’s Sri Lankan community said: “Suren was a fine, upstanding young man.

  • The four people charged in connection with the alleged murder are Gnanachandran Balachandran, 37, from Springfield, Kiroraj Yogarajah, 30, from Grange Farm, Prashanth Thevarasa, 23, of Farrier Place, Downs Barn and a 17 year old boy.
