Vehicle hijacked on 'cleared' road

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 16 February 1999, 11:31 GMT]
The official vehicle of the President of College of Education in Batticaloa, Mr. K.Nadarajah, was taken away by gunmen suspected to be members of the Liberation Tigers around 10.30 a.m. this morning. The vehicle was stopped at Vanthaarumoolai, 20 km. north of Batticaloa, by the gunmen who drove away with the driver who was released at the next village.

The van is now in the area beyond the lagoon which is under the control of the Liberation Tigers said a Police source in Batticaloa.

The President of the College of Education was on his way to Colombo on official duty.

Following regulations relating to the use of official vehicles issued yesterday by the Sri Lankan Army (SLA), he had selected to travel on the main road after the army had cleared it for military convoys today.

The army sent out strict instructions to all government departments yesterday to ensure that no official vehicle falls into the hands of the Liberation Tigers.
