Hartley College student disappears

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 17 January 2007, 13:48 GMT]
An advanced level student at Hartley College, Point Pedro has been missing from Monday amidst escalating number of disappearances in Jaffna district. Murugananthan Paramananthan, 19, from Northern coastal town of Viyaparimoolai was on his way to Nelliyadi, 3km south of his home town to attend to personal errands, when he disappeared, the parents said in a complaint filed at the Jaffna offices of the Human Rights Commission (HRC).

Paramananthan's disappearance comes in the wake of the disappearance of Thananjayan, a student at Velayutham Boys’ School in Point Pedro who went missing from 12 January.

Parents of Paramananthan said they suspect the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) to be behind the disappearance of their son.

Meanwhile, students at Velayutham Boys School are boycotting classes for the second day demanding the release of Thananjeyan.

Students consortium of Velayutham Boys School in a memorandum issued today said the boycott will spread to all schools in Vadamaradchy beginning Monday if Thananjeyan is not released.
