Tamil youth from Batticaloa reported missing at Colombo airport

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 22 December 2015, 21:45 GMT]
A 22-year-old Tamil youth from Batticaloa, who returned from Qatar, has been reported missing after he arrived at Colombo Katunayake Airport on 12 December, according to a complaint made to SL Police at Katunayake. The missing person, Gunathas Navaratnam, who hails from Periya Ma'ndapaththadi in Vavu'na-theevu left Batticaloa for employment in Qatar a month earlier in October. According to CCTV footage at the airport, his son had arrived in the airport, says his father Navaratnam Samithamby.

Last week, Mr Samithamby was informed by one of the friends of Gunathas in Qatar that his son had become ill and was returning home.

Samithamy says his son had no illness when he went abroad. Before leaving to Qatar, Guanthas was subjected to medical inspection and was utilised with a medical certificate, he said.

The SL military intelligence has detained many Tamil returnees from the Middle East earlier. Some of them are yet to be released.
