2 men abducted for ransom in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 21 April 2010, 07:49 GMT]
Unidentified persons arriving in a vehicle forcibly took away two family men on their way to Jaffna town on a motor cycle Tuesday and later rang the family members of the two men and demanded five million rupees for one of them and three million rupees for the other as ransom, their family members said in their complaint to Vaddukkoadai police. Each time the abductors had called for ransom using different hand phones.

One of the abducted persons is Varatharajasingham Maheswaran, motor mechanic and a resident of Navaali.

The other man abducted is Sivarasa Mahenthiran, an electrician, also from Navaali.

Both men are friends and had left to Jaffna from Navaali.

Recently a family man from the islets of Jaffna was abducted for ransom and so far nothing is known about his fate.

Abductions, extortion, sexual abuse of women carried out allegedly by armed men working in collaboration with Sri Lanka Intelligence Unit have risen at an alarming rate in Jaffna peninsula in recent times.
