Abducted youth recovered in Trincomalee: SL Police

[TamilNet, Sunday, 01 April 2012, 23:26 GMT]
Sri Lankan Police spokesman Ajith Rohana on Saturday said that the 22-year-old Tamil youth, Ananda Kishore Thanikasalam, abducted in Vaakarai on 28 March, was recovered at Dehiwatte in Serunuwara of Trincomalee district. The youth had been abducted from his house as his parents refused to hand over their 8 acres of palm grove to a Sinhala person from the South. As the abduction was highlighted in the media, the SL police was attempting to project the abduction as a ransom case, informed sources said.

A police investigation team from Colombo had also inspected the house of Mr. Thanikasalam.

On 19 March 2012, a group of CID officers who had come from the South forced the family to hand them over a copy of the land deed.
