[TamilNet, Thursday, 19 March 2009, 19:18 GMT]
A mother and her two-month-old child sustaining injuries in the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) shelling in Vanni and taken to Trincomalee by the International Committee of Red Cross (ICRC) and admitted to Mannaar government hospital 16 February had reported missing Wednesday night, according to complaints made by her relatives to Vanni Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarians.

The mother and child gone missing are identified as Nakuleswaran Kirishanthini and Nakuleswaran Sanjeevan.

The relatives of Krishanthini had expressed fear that she with her child may have been abducted by Sri Lanka Police intelligence personnel or the paramilitary men operating with Sri Lanka Army (SLA).

In the latter part of February 3 persons of a family sustaining injuries in SLA shelling in Vanni and admitted to Mannaar government hospital had gone missing mysteriously.

The police had tightened security precautions in the hospital surroundings following the above incident.

Vanni TNA parliamentarians said that they had received complaints from relatives of persons brought from Liberation Tigers held territories in Vanni by ICRC going missing from the hospitals in Vavuniyaa and Mannaar.

The young men and women screened and detained in the SLA controlled detention camps in Vavuniyaa are selected by the police and held in separate detention camps and subjected to interrogation by Police Intelligence Unit personnel, according to the TNA Vanni parliamentarians.

They also said that the relatives of the above young men and women have complained of many young men had gone missing without trace and the young women sexually assaulted.
