[TamilNet, Thursday, 26 February 2009, 17:06 GMT]
The wife of Chudaroli (Sudar Oli) Editor who was 'abducted' first and later claimed 'arrested' by the Sri Lankan Police, told media Thursday night that her husband had been attacked on his head and heels inside the white-van by the abductors. Meanwhile, Vithyatharan was dumped at Demattagoda by the abductors, Police told Mrs. Kala Vithytharan Thursday evening. However, Vithyatharan is detained at the Crime Division of the Police in Demattagoda where his wife visited him with their three children with police permission.

In the meantime, Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa, when contacted by Uthayan Press Group Chairman M. Saravanapavan, reportedly claimed that it was not abduction, but an arrest as police was involved in it.

However, there was no arrest warrant or police vehicle involved in the episode at the funeral parlour where the editor was 'abducted’.

Media circles in Colombo said the act was a pre-planned intimidation against the prominent Tamil editor.

Meanwhile, Sravanabavan, said that Mount Lavinia police had interrogated him for nearly an hour Thursday evening at his residence on 70 Davidson Road in Bambalapitiya.

The interrogating police officers had asked for information on how Vithyatharan was abducted besides other details, he said.
