Probe commences on Gurunagar disappeared youths

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 13 October 2004, 16:25 GMT]
Jaffna Magistrate Mr.K.Viknarajah Wednesday held the preliminary inquiry into a Habeas Corpus (HC) application filed by relatives of three Tamil youths who disappeared after being arrested by the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers in 1996, legal sources said. The youths were residents of Gurunagar and Ariyalai areas.

The Jaffna High Court earlier referred the HC application to the Jaffna Magistrate for preliminary inquiry and report.

Attorneys Mr.M.Remedius and Mr.A.Vinayagamoorthy appeared for the petitioners.

Captain Kuruppu who appeared for the respondents cross-examined the petitioners, legal sources said.

The Magistrate put off the further inquiry for December 7 and ordered the authorities concerned to produce certified copies of complaints made by parents of disappeared Tamil youths on the next date of inquiry, legal sources said.
