Soldiers abduct youth in Jaffna, family man reported missing

[TamilNet, Thursday, 12 April 2007, 18:35 GMT]
A group of four armed men in military fatigue, riding in a white van, Monday midnight forcibly abducted a young labourer at gun point from his residence in Old Park Road in Koyyaththoaddam in Jaffna. The victim's father, in his testimony to the Sri Lanka Human Rights Commission in Jaffna, has said he was prepared to identify the perpetrators if an identity parade is held and alleged that the perpetrators were Sri Lanka Army soldiers.

The victim was 24-year-old Rajendram Uthayakumar.

This was the fourth abduction in the area since January.

In a separate incident, a young married man has gone missing from his residence on Potpathi Road, Kudaththanai in Vadamaraadchi region, according to a complaint lodged by his wife at the Jaffna office of the SLHRC.

The victim, identified as Selvaraja Mugunthan, alias Suresh, 34, father of one, had left his house on the 3rd of April and has not been seen since then.
