Abductors demand ransom from family in the islets of Jaffna

[TamilNet, Monday, 05 April 2010, 04:25 GMT]
The young family man from Veala’nai in the islets of Jaffna gone missing since 30 March has been abducted for a ransom of 300,000 rupees, according to a complaint lodged with Human Rights Commission (HRC) Jaffna office by his family members Sunday. Unknown persons had phoned the neighbours of the family and demanded the money. Attempts to contact the callers on the number of the cell phone used had failed, according to the complaint.

The family man gone missing is Suntharalingam Selvan, 24, a resident of Thaalikku’lam in Veala’nai East.

Selvan has been missing after going to a shop near his house on 30th March in the evening.

Selvan’s family members complained to Oorkaavattu’rai police on the next day.

The demand for ransom comes five days after Selvan had gone missing.

Recently a teen-age student in Chaavakachcheari had been abducted and killed for not being paid the ransom demanded.

Meanwhile, the fate of another resident from Oorkaavattu’rai who had gone missing recently in Jaffna town where he had gone to purchase things for his shop still remains unknown.
