[TamilNet, Wednesday, 12 May 2010, 06:16 GMT]
Unidentified men arriving in a van forcibly took away a family woman Tuesday morning as she was returning along Karaveddi Sampanthar shop area after having taken her son to school, sources in Vadamaraadchi said. The abductors had attacked the woman with the intention of killing her and dumped her among the shrubs in a deserted area in Valvai where Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers are on patrol. Meanwhile, a teenage girl student had managed to escape from abductors with injuries Tuesday in Point Pedro in Vadamaraadchi while some men had tried to abduct a young woman in front of Jaffna Teaching Hospital as she was coming out of the hospital after treatment, sources in Jaffna said.

Jaffna peninsula people are gripped in shock and fear of continuing abductions, killings and sexual abuse of women alleged to be carried out by paramilitary men collaborating with Sri Lanka Military Intelligence wing, the sources added.

The woman left among the shrubs in Valvai is identified as S. Lankathevi, 37.

Point Pedro police recovered her unconscious on being informed by someone who happened to see her dumped among the shrubs. She was admitted to Jaffna Teaching Hospital and her condition is said to be critical.

The girl student who had escaped in Point Pedro is Shanmgarasa Anushika, 18. She was walking along the street near Vadamaraachchi Hindu Ladies’ College when the abductors forcibly took her in their vehicle.

Anushika was assaulted but managed to jump off the vehicle with serious injuries and was rescued by public who had gathered at the spot. She is admitted to Manthikai government hospital.

Jaffna police arrested two suspects who had tried to abduct the young woman coming out of Jaffna Teaching Hospital Tuesday.

Meanwhile, a boy from Jaffna suspected abducted was rescued by Vavuniyaa police Tuesday while he was wandering in the streets of Vavuniyaa.

Police brought him to Jaffna Tuesday.
