Vavuniya police arrests youths over abduction

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 07 October 2003, 16:16 GMT]
The Vavuniya district judge, Mr. M. Ilancheliyan, ordered remand under high security for three youths arrested by the Vavuniya Police Monday in connection with the abduction of two girls who were thought to have joined the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, but were in fact abducted by unidentified men who later abandoned the girls at the Maravankulam settlement, sources in Vavuniya said.

According to the police, one of the arrested youths was employed at the parking lot of the Vavuniya hospital, and another youth recently returned from abroad and has been attempting to go to Italy.

The two girls have been admitted to the Anuradhapura hospital for medical tests by the judicial medical officer, police said.

The judge ordered the police to conduct further inquiries about where the girls were taken, and to investigate the owners of the lodges and homes where the girls were allegedly kept overnights.

The judge has also ordered that the suspects should be held at the Anuradhapura prisons under high security and brought to Vavuniya when the case is taken up at the court.
