Attempt to abduct boy in Jaffna foiled

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 20 April 2010, 17:12 GMT]
A 13-year-old student, of a family of uprooted persons from Valikaamam, staying in Paarvathi refugee camp in Maanipaay managed to escape from his abductors Tuesday when they tried to take him forcibly in a van by crying aloud for help and screaming, sources in Jaffna said. An unknown person on bicycle had requested the boy to take him to an address and taken him to the van waiting to take the boy away. The boy, in his statement to the police, said that he saw two boys lying with hands and feet bound inside the van when the abductors tried to force him inside. Maanipaay police, however, did not entertain the complaint made by his parents and their fellow refugees, the sources added.

The boy who escaped abduction is Thuraisingham Ajithkumar, a student of Maanippay Memorial College.

The complainants, failing to get the police to take action, have informed various organizations about the abduction.

Incidents of bduction, sexual violence on women, killing for robbery and ransom have escalated during the recent past in Jaffna peninsula and the indifference shown by police reveal that persons who engage in these violence are protected by politically influential leaders in the government, civil society organizations in Jaffna said.
