[TamilNet, Thursday, 24 September 2009, 15:33 GMT]
Kathiravel Thayapararaja, a 28-year old Tamil Electrical Engineer, is feared to have been extra-judically executed by Sri Lanka intelligent services, after being forcefully abducted sometime second week of September, informed sources in Colombo said. Thayapararaja's wife, Uthayakala, and the two children of her diseased sister who were under Uthayakala's care, have now been taken under the protection and care of a Church Organization in Colombo, after being left helpless with the disappearance of her husband, unconfirmed reports said.

A human rights organization has informed Thayapararaja's disappearance to the US assistant secretary of state for South Asian affairs, Ambassador Robert Blake, who has responded that he will check the information [thorugh the US embassy in Sri Lanka].

Thayapararaja graduated from Peradeniya University in 2000, and joined Vanni Institute of Technology (VanniTech), in Kilinochchi as the Director two years after the Institute was formed in 2003. The Institute provided Information Technology education to NorthEast youths, and was developing as a sought after institution of study in the North.

VanniTech was funded by Tamil expatriate technologists from Silicon Valley, and was registered as a US federal tax exempt charitable organization in the USA and an approved NGO in Sri Lanka.
