17 -- General Officer Commander-in-Chief of the Southern Command of Indian Army Lieutenant General P M Hariz is expected to pay floral tribute to one his colleague, who was killed in August 1987, during the IPKF
Parthasarthy and I flew to Jaffna to have a close look at the activities of the IPKF

, the near genocide of poor Sinhalese in 1988-89 and the challenge of duty in Jaffna post 1990 .
In addition, he is scheduled to meet leaders from across the spectrum of the Sri Lankan polity and pay his respects at the IPKF
had left its wretched mark in dead and raped Northerners.

It had eluded at considerable cost the much vaunted (pre invasion of SL), IPKF
, of the 4th biggest Army in the World.
He was actively involved in IPKF
Operations at Sri Lanka, for which he was awarded Yudha Seva Medal.
SL remembers that not so longer ago the latter dropped anchor opposite the Presidential Secretariat Office in Colombo (1987) in a 'show the flag ' support of the criminal invasion of the IPKF
and to give warning to any SL citizen who opposed the 'Agreement'.
