Five of six Mannaar abductees released, Colombo involvement exposed

[TamilNet, Monday, 10 January 2011, 08:40 GMT]
Five of six civilians abducted from Mannaar on Thursday, including Jazeel Jaharil whose abduction created confrontation between the abductors and his relatives exposing the squads link with Sri Lankan military, returned Friday evening from Colombo and were handed over to their relatives Saturday early morning by the Sri Lankan Police. Earlier reports said 4 persons were abducted on Thursday. But, according to latest information 6 persons were abducted that day. No information is available about the other person, Mr. Sasi, who is also reported missing on Thursday.

The episode last week, which shocked Mannaar, exposed involvement of higher hands in Colombo in the abductions taking place in Tamil country.

Jaharil Jazeel who owns a vehcile, auto driver Tharma from Peasaalai, barber Kamal from Thoaddave'li, resettled Vanni IDP Navaratnam Thillainathan from Periyakamam of Hundred House Scheme and a female from 4th division in Peasalai were the 5 people who were returned to Mannaar from Colombo after, ‘investigations‚’ by the abductors who had taken them to Colombo at gunpoint.

The SLA, SLN and police guarding the Mannaar Bridge, allowed the abductors to proceed with the abducted after seeing a piece of paper produced by the abductors right in front of the relatives of one of the victims, who were chasing the white-van.
