Rasaratnam Thevachandran, 29, a father of two children and Director of a popular private educational institute in Nelliady, 4km south west of Point Pedro town, has gone missing from Tuesday, 03 January, sources in Jaffna said.

The Modern Education Center where Thevachandran worked is close to the Nelliady Police station, Sri Lanka Army (SLA) 52-4 Brigade Civil administration secretariat, and Eelam Peoples Democratic Party (EPDP) offices located in the central part of Nelliady town.

Students at the Institute said that Mr Thevachandran was present at the tutory on Tuesday, and stayed in the building after the tuition classes ended for the day at 9 p.m. to finish up some administrative work.

When Mr Thevachandran failed to return home his relatives had gone in search of him and found his motor bike in the building premises unattended.

Thevachandran's relatives filed a complaint of his disappearance with the Sri Lanka Human Rights Commission and with the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM), Thursday. The complaint said that since Thevachandran disappeared from inside a secure area that contained Sri Lanka Police, SLA and EPDP buildings, the police, SLA officers and EPDP cadres are complicit in Thevachandran's disappearance.
