Abducted youth in Ragama left blindfolded in Dambulla

[TamilNet, Monday, 17 September 2007, 10:41 GMT]
Kanthasamy Kamaladas, 29, abducted by unidentified persons on Wednesday morning at Ragama railway station appeared at the Ragama police station Monday morning, sources in Colombo said. Kamaladas said he was dropped by the abductors in a jungle area in Dambulla in Kandy district on Sunday night blind-folded, but managed to obtain help from a lorry driver to travel back to Ragama.

The Ragama Police recorded his statement.

Kamaladas with his mother from Veala'nai, Kayts in Jaffna district had earlier travelled to Trincomalee in ship and boarded a Colombo bound bus when two men had forcibly taken Kamaladas out of the bus.

According to a complaint by his mother with the International Committee of Red Cross (ICRC), one of the abductors was wearing Sri Lanka Army (SLA) uniform.

The youth was later handed over to his mother at the Trincomalee police station. They then boarded a night train to Colombo. As they reached Ragama at about 5:00 a.m. Thursday, a gang had surrounded the youth and forced him into a waiting van. The mother was also bundled into the van, but was later forced to get out of the van.

The mother in her complaint stated that she recognized one of the abductors at Ragama railway station as the person who abducted her son in Trincomalee.
