A 26 year-old married Tamil woman was abducted Thursday afternoon in Mabola area, Wattala in Colombo district by a group of unidentified men who came in a three-wheeler while she was having a conversation with her co-employees at a bus halt, according to the complaint lodged by her husband S.Thevamanoharan with the Wattala police on Friday.

Her husband is a resident of Matugama in upcountry. Both got married recently and have been working in a private establishment in Colombo.

On the day of the incident Pushparanee went for work as usual. Later a woman known to her had asked her to come out of the work place to have a chat. Pushparanee was engaged in a conversation, when a three wheeler arrived at the scene.
