Two siblings abducted, one shot dead, in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Thursday, 07 February 2008, 10:47 GMT]
Unidentified armed men in a white van abducted a brother and sister Wednesday night, while Sri Lanka Army (SLA) troopers shot and killed another brother who tried to escape from the abductors near Chunnaakam Railway Station, according to a complaint registered with Human Rights Commission (HRC) Jaffna by the parents Thursday.

The abducted are identified as Balendran Priyatharshini, 22 and her brother Balendran Pirapakaran, 21.

SLA troops, after shooting dead their brother, told the parents that they are taking the body with them, the parents said in the complaint.

The family are originally from Thunnaalai, Karaveddi in Vadamraadchchi and had moved to Chunnaakam due to death threats from SLA troops and SLA-backed paramilitaries.
