A Savukadi resident, Subramaniyam Krishnamoorthy, 28, was abducted by armed men travelling in a white-van at a play ground in Savukadi a hamlet of Thalavi in Eravur at 6:20 p.m. Friday, residents complained to the Eravur police. The abductors took his motorcycle with them. Mr Krishnamoorthy was about to leave the play ground after playing soccer when he was abducted, sources said.

Eravur police are conducting investigations into the abduction.
