Two Tamil youths of Aaraiyampathi were abducted by unidentified armed men who arrived in a white van on September 18, according to complaints lodged with the Kaaththaankudi Police and the Batticaloa regional office of the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL).

Yoganathan Suresh, 16, of Navaratnam Street, Aaraiyampathi and Gansehamudaliyar Uhanthan, 22, of Aaraiyampathi East were abducted when they went to Paalamunai Muslim area to sell goats. Tension escalated between the two communities following the abduction, and Kaaththaankudi Police took immediate steps to diffuse the tension. The Police have appealed to the public through public address system from mosques in the area to give information about the missing Tamils to prevent further tension between communities, sources said.
