Mr.Visanthy Aloysius, a Tamil farmer of Vellalarkaddu in Nanattan division in Mannar district is now reported missing after being arrested by the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) on April 29.

"The wife and children of Mr.Visanthy Aloysius are living in fear for the safety of Mr Aloysius. We appeal to you to instruct SLA officials concerned to furnish information regarding the whereabouts of Mr.Visanthy Aloysius to his wife and children," parliamentarians requested the President in their letter.
