Abductee left for dead by SLA troopers, survives

[TamilNet, Thursday, 22 March 2007, 21:16 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) troopers abducted a labourer from his house Wednesday around 8:00 p.m at Mandan, Karaveddy in Vadamaradchy, knifed and strangled him, and dumped the body in Valaiveli area thinking he was dead. People who went in search of him Thursday morning found him severely injured fighting for life and brought him home, sources in Karaveddy said. The abductee, testifying before Point Pedro Magistrate, said that he was abducted at gunpoint by SLA troopers and that he can identify abductors.

Thangathurai Thayaparan, 28, and a father of one child, survived the wounds and the ordeal.

Thayaparan's younger brother, an auto driver aged 23, had been receiving death threats in the last few days by Sri Lanka Army (SLA), and Thayaparan's relatives speculate that Thayaparan was mistakenly abducted for his brother.

Jaffna Human Rights Commission (HRC) officials, took the brothers to Point Pedro courts where Magistrate Mr. K. Ariyanayagam instructed the HRC officials first to admit the brothers to Jaffna Teaching Hospital for medical treatment and then to take steps to place them in the protective custody of Jaffna prison.
