[TamilNet, Tuesday, 12 August 2008, 08:08 GMT]
One of the five girl students abducted by unidentified armed men in a van Saturday in Paddiruppu area managed to escape when the van stopped at Kiraan Aachchiramam area in Vaazhaichcheanai police division in Batticaloa district, sources in Vaazhaichcheanai said. The fate of the other four girls remains unknown.

The girl who escaped, while going to a private tuition class on Saturday, had been stopped by the abductors in the van who tried to give her a handbill and when she extended her hand to get it she was pulled forcibly into the van and driven away.

Escaping from her abductors at Kiraan in Vaazhaichcheanai police division, the girl had phoned from a telecomunication centre to her parents who came to Kiraan and took her home.

The other four girl students are from Vellaave’li area in Batticaloa district, the escaped girl told her parents.

Last week a nineteen-year-old Tamil girl who was abducted by an unidentified armed group on Tuesday evening in Batticaloa town escaped at Cinnamons Garden in Colombo 6 August while being taken in a bus along with some abducted girls from the east.

Incidents of young girls being abducted in Batticaloa district have increased at an alarming rate causing fear and anxiety among the parents.
