[TamilNet, Friday, 21 March 2014, 17:43 GMT]
More than 10 Sri Lankan military operatives, who came in a white-van and motorbikes Thursday night abducted a 40-year-old father of three at Kottaavaththai in Ka'rana-vaay North in Vadamaraadchi. The abduction took place at gunpoint as neighbours gathered at the site in defence of the victim. At the same time, a 35-year-old fisherman was ‘abducted’ at Vettilaik-kea'ni in Vadamaraadchi East. The military operatives gave a note in Sinhala to his wife stating that the Sri Lankan Terrorist Investigation Division (TID) has detained him, news sources in Jaffna said.

Those arrested in ‘abduction’ style were Thurai Jeyakumar, who is a carpenter from Kara'na-vaay and Sabaratnam Jeyaramesh from Vettilaik-kea'ni.

The abductors had blamed that the victims were providing food and other material assistance to a ‘regrouping section’ of former LTTE cadres.

In the meantime, the SL military in Jaffna has said that all vehicles would be subjected to inspection.

A special investigation ‘Terrorist’ investigation division has come from Colombo, police officials told media.
