Abducted school girl's family under SLA threat

[TamilNet, Friday, 13 January 2006, 03:03 GMT]
The Jaffna school girl abducted by four Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers from Paalpannai (Milk Farm) Road in between Thirunelvely and Kondavil junction was returned to her parents in Kondavil Tuesday night by higher officers of the SLA, reliable sources from Jaffna said.

Kondavil residents who witnessed the abduction and other residents allege that the SLA soldiers were intending to subject the school girl to sexual abuse but had to abandon their pursuit on the direction of higher SLA officers who flew into Jaffna from Palaly military camp on being notified of the escalating protests in Kondavil following the abduction on Tuesday afternoon 2 p.m.

The abducted girl is sixteen years old and said to be a GCE (Ordinary Level) student at a popular Kondavil mixed school, residents said.

She was on her way to her aunt's house and was going in a bicycle along Paalpannai road when she was forcefully taken away by SLA soldiers.

Sri Lanka Army (SLA) officers have threatened the family with death if the details of abduction were made public.

The principal of the school where the abducted girl attends warned TamilNet correspondents to be cognizant of the seriousness of the threat to life of the girls family when filing stories with details of abduction.
