[TamilNet, Friday, 27 July 2007, 11:37 GMT]
A Tamil civilian abducted in a blue colour van by a four-member gang on May 6 in Colombo was found at Boosa detention camp in Galle last weekend. He has been identified as Rajaretnam Ilankeswaran, 34, a resident of Sivanantha Road in Kotahena.

Ilankeswaran's wife and daughter are in London.

His parents have gone to Jaffna on the day he was abducted.

No complaint was lodged with the police or with any civil authority immediately, according to representation made by his parents to Mr.P.Radhakrishnan, Deputy Minister later.

Parents who came to Colombo from Jaffna had heard from several sources that their son could also be among detainees in the Boosa detention camp.

Parents of Ilankeswaran went to Galle last Saturday, as relatives are allowed in Fridays and Saturdays only at the Boosa camp.

When they entered the camp they saw their son among other detainees. Immediately they returned to Colombo and made representation to Mr.Radhakrishnan, sources said.
