Mannar family appeals to trace disappeared youth

[TamilNet, Saturday, 21 October 2006, 11:39 GMT]
The family of a Tamil youth of Periyakamam in Mannar district who was reported disappeared eight months ago has sought the assistance of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) and Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL) to trace his whereabouts.

The family suspect that the youth could have been arrested by the Sri Lankan armed forces.

The disappeared 32 year-old youth Karuppiah Sinniah had been permanent resident of Paraiyakulam in Adamban division. He had gone on December 27th last year from Periyakamam to see his paddy lands located in Paddithoddam in his motorbike. But he failed to return thereafter.

He had disappeared during a tense situation following a claymore mine attack on Sri Lanka Navy personnel on December 23, according to the complaint.

His family has lodged a complaint with the Mannar regional offices of the SLMM and HRCSL in this regard Friday, civil sources said.

The family has expressed concern that the disappeared could have been taken into custody by the Sri Lanka Navy while he was going to paddy field or on his return.
