Unidentified armed men arriving in a white van abducted a disabled man in broad day light at Thettkiyalady in Chunnakam, Valigamam, Tuesday around 11:00 a.m, as he was riding his bicycle along Kankesanthurai road where Sri Lanka Army (SLA) troopers were present, the family members said.

The abducted is identified as Daniel Shantharoopan, 30, a family man from Mylankadu in Elalai. His footwear and prosthetic leg were found lying at the place from where he was abducted, eyewitnesses said.

Shantharoopan had been earlier summoned several times by SLA troopers at the Atchelu SLA camp where he was beaten and then released, his wife said.

She also said that the Chunnakam police and SLA said they will conduct investigation when she complained about her husband's abduction.
