[TamilNet, Saturday, 07 March 2009, 06:22 GMT]
Vavuniyaa police in mufti arrested Wednesday three paramilitary persons and three Sri Lanka military intelligence personnel for the abduction of the Assistant Manager of the Bank of Ceylon Vavuniyaa branch and a security officer Tuesday, demanding millions of rupees from the Bank as ransom, sources in Vavuniyaa said. The abductors later demanded the family members of the two abducted officers to pay a ransom of 900,000 rupees as Bank of Ceylon authorities refused to pay the sum originally demanded.

The arrests were made when the family members went to the appointed place to deliver the money, the sources added.

Vavuniyaa police officers in mufti arrested the two abductors who were waiting at the appointed place for the family members for the ransom money.

Four others involved in the ransom demand were arrested later on information elicited from the arrested abductors, Police said.
