Youths seek safety through Jaffna SLHRC

[TamilNet, Saturday, 06 January 2007, 00:03 GMT]
Two brothers of a youth abducted from his Kokuvil residence by armed men alleged to be Sri Lanka Army troopers and Tamil paramilitary members Tuesday midnight, surrendered Friday at the Sri Lanka Human Rights Commission (SLHRC) Jaffna office, fearing for their lives, sources close to SLHRC Jaffna said. The youths were placed in protective custody of Jaffna prison.

30 unidentified armed men had come to Varaki Amman Kovilady road at Kokuvil west in Jaffna to the residence of Ravidran Rajinthan Tuesday night and forced him into their vehicle. His father who tried to prevent him being taken way was shot and seriously injured.

33 youths, including the two who sought asylum at the SLHRC Friday, have been placed in the safety of Jaffna prison.
