The kidnappers of a Tamil businesman, Vadivel Anandan, who was abducted Wednesday night in Colombo, have demanded a 20 million Lankan rupees ransom for his release, family members told media Friday. The abductors, who allowed the businessman to call his family members for two minutes on Thursday, have threatened not to divulge any information to the Police.

Tamil millionaire businessman Vadivel Anandan (54) was abducted Wednesday night near his residence at Alexandra Road, Wellawatta, in Colombo.

His brother Vadivel Arul who witnessed the abduction said there were at least four kidnappers, two of them clad in military fatigues.

The kidnappers came in two vehicles.

Vadivel Arul has made a compliant with the Wellawatta Police following the incident on Wednesday.
