The Magistrate of Kayts courts Mr. Jeyaraman Trotsky commenting Thursday on the progress into the investigations of a postal employee and a staffer Sri Lanka Transport board (SLTB), who disappeared on June 07 between Madaththuve'li , Pungkudutheevu and Veala'nai, said he was dissatisfied with the handling of the case by Kayts police, legal sources in Jaffna said.

Mr.Trotsky instructed Kayts police to re-record evidence from the wives of the two disappeared persons and to again compile the evidence obtained from eye-witnesses. He said he is aware that there are a number of eye witnesses for the disappearance of the two employees.

Mr.Trotsky also ordered the officer in charge (OIC) Kayts to appear in court that when the case resumes at a later date, and provide his testimony regarding all relevant information.

The magistrate also directed the police to investigate the discovery of a postal bag near Pommaive'li , Kaakkaitheevu and submit a detailed report through the OIC.

Eye witness accounts indicate the bus in which the disappeared conductor was working had an engine failure and while proceeding on foot towards Veala'nai to report to SLTB head office, had met a postal employee traveling in a motor bicycle and the two had jointly continued their journey, Mr.Trotsky said.

Kayts police informed Mr. Trotsky that when they inquired at the Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) check point in Velanai, the naval personnel had stated that there was record of the motorcycle traveling from SLN-controlled-Pungudutivu up to Veala'nai passing through the check point at Veala'naithurai but the details of the occupants of the vehicle was not recorded.
