Relatives of most of the disappeared persons in Mannaar district, who attended a discussion organised by Vavuniyaa Non-Violent Peace Organisation at Mannaar Divisional Secretariat on Friday have said that most of the disappeared were taken into 'custody' by the Sri Lanka Navy for 'interrogation'. The meeting was organised to collect details of the missing persons in the district. More than one hundred fifty civilians, majority of them were Tamils, had disappeared in the district during the last two years.

Relatives further said they were in dark since their kith and kin disappeared after the arrest by the SLN.

Whereabouts of disappeared were not known to them, the relatives complained.

Staff from Vavuniyaa regional office of the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL) also attended the discussion, sources said.
