[TamilNet, Wednesday, 28 March 2007, 03:41 GMT]
A youth from Navalar Road Jaffna disappeared after being stopped at the Arasady Junction in Nallur for interrogation by the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers stationed at the junction, the youth's relatives said in a complaint to the Jaffna Offices of the Human Rights Commission (HRC).

Lakshumanan Nishanthan, 23, a businessman, was travelling towards Nallur in his Hiace van when he was stopped at the checkpoint at 11:00 a.m. Tuesday.

Local witnesses saw the van being driven by another unidentified driver without Nishanthan at about 11:30 a.m., the relatives said in the complaint.

The relatives also said, that the SLA officials admitted that they were holding Nishanthan and had told the relatives that they will release him after questioning.

Relatives have not received any additional details on Nishanthan whereabouts, and fear for his safety, the complaint said.
