A 19 year old youth, Subramaniam Sureshkumar, was abducted by unidentified armed men, while he was at the canteen run by the Tellipallai Multi-purpose co-operative society (MPCS) in the Jaffna peninsula.

The third is, Rasathurai Jeniferharan,24 of Araaly in Vaddukkoddai.

The Human Rights Commission office in Jaffna is making inquiries, sources said.

The third, Nesaiah Jeyasuthan,19 is being detained by the army.
