Two Tamil youths from Thirunelvely and Neervely areas in Jaffna, abducted by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) troopers who arrived at the victims' houses in Buffel armored vehicles Friday night were found dead Saturday morning with severe cut wounds inflicted with a sharp instrument, civil sources in Jaffna said.

The body of Murugesu Tharmaseelan, 26, from Atchelu in Neervely Jaffna was found Saturday morning in the Milkboard Village in Thirunelvely Jaffna, sources said. Tharmaseelan was taken away from home in Atchelu by SLA soldiers Friday evening, according to his relatives.

Meanwhile, the body of Nagesi Vinothan, 22, who was abducted Friday by SLA troopers, was found near Kopay Heroes cemetary with cut wounds, sources in Jaffna said.

The two bodies have been transferred to Jaffna Teaching Hospital for postmortem examinations, hospital sources said.

The two deaths are the latest in the escalating number of abductions and subsequent killings in Jaffna believed to be ochestrated by the SLA troops and the collaborating paramilitaries as part of Colombo's counter-insurgency campaign.
