[TamilNet, Monday, 01 October 2007, 13:04 GMT]
Armed men in a white van abducted a family man Monday around 2:40 a.m, from his house at Navaali north in Jaffna, after assaulting his family members, according to complaints made by them to Human Rights Commission (HRC) Jaffna. Meanwhile, three civilians, from Chaavakachcheari north, Maanipaay, and Kamparmalai, sought protection with Jaffna HRC due to death threats from Sri Lanka Army (SLA) and SLA-backed paramilitaries.

The civilian abducted is identified as Kanapathipillai Tharumesan, 34, a father of 4 children.

Two daily labourers, one from Chaavakachcheari north in Thenmaraadchi and the other from Kamparmalai in Vadamaraadchi, both aged 23, sought HRC protection Monday.

The third to seek protection with HRC is a 35-year-old family man, a father of 3 children from Kankasabai Veethi in Maanipaay, Jaffna.
