SL government responsible for abductions – TMVP

[TamilNet, Thursday, 16 September 2010, 05:23 GMT]
Sri Lanka government should take responsibility for the abductions that have taken place after the war in Eastern Province, the propaganda secretary of Tamil Makkal Viduthalai Pullikal (TMVP), a political-cum-paramilitary party led by Eastern Province Chief Minister, Sivanesathurai Chandrakanthan alias Pillayan, said in a meeting held in Kommaanththu’rai in Batticaloa district. Meanwhile, Batticaloa district residents said that armed men alleged to be Pillayan group and Karuna group abduct persons and rob houses in the outskirt villages of the district. Karnuna group is also a political-cum-paramilitary party led by Sri Lanka minister Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan alias Karuna.

TMVP member of Batticaloa Municipal Council, Pragasam Sgayamani alias Killi Master had been abducted on 23rd August 2010 but so far the police had not found him, Jegan, the TMVP secretary said.

Sgayamani’s wife had been threatened to give up demonstrating her protest against the abduction by immolating herself and her two children in front Batticaloa Municipal Council, he said.

She had said in her complaint to police that it was the Intelligence wing men of Sri Lanka Army who had abducted her husband, he added.

Jegan further said that the delay in tracing the abducted member raises suspicion against Sri Lanka government involvement in the abduction of Sagayamani.
