Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers driving four motorbikes abducted three manual laborers in Kambarmalai in Vadamaradchy Sunday at 11 a.m. while they were doing farm work at a private property, according to complaints registered at the Jaffna Human Rights Commission offices.

The abducted were identified as:
  • Kovintharajah Kirubaharan, 22, from Puloly, Point Pedro,
  • Kandiah Selvakumar, 21, from Puloly, Point Pedro, and
  • Velayutham Krishnamohan, 19, from School Lane, Viyaparimoolai, Point Pedro.
