The body of an elderly disabled man, who was abducted by three unidentified armed men Tuesday around 11:00 p.m from his house near Kanthaswamy Temple in Kopay north, was recovered Wednesday morning at Thirunelveli Dairy Farm area in Jaffna, with bullet wounds, civil sources said.

The victim, identified as Kathiravelu Selvarasa, father of seven children, had lost his leg in a mine explosion and moved about with a prosthetic leg.

The relatives of Selavarasa said that the abductors took him away saying they wanted to interrogate him.

The body has been transferred to the Jaffna Teaching Hospital for post mortem examinations.

Meanwhile, the two bodies of youths shot dead by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) troopers Monday in Thirunelveli still remain unidentified at the Jaffna Teaching hospital morgue.

No one has claimed the dead bodies of the two youths, said hospital sources.
