Men claiming to be SLA intelligence personnel abduct, sexually abuse young woman in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 27 April 2010, 17:39 GMT]
Four men claiming to be Sri Lanka Army (SLA) intelligence personnel abducted Sunday a young woman at Kalikai junction in Vadamarradchi and sexually abused her at a deserted place in the area. The men later strangled her and abandoned her taking away her jewelry and other possessions. Local residents who happened to see her Monday morning admitted her to the hospital. Point Pedro police took into custody two men on the information the woman gave and detained them in Jaffna prison through Point Pedro magistrate Court, sources in Point Pedro said. Meanwhile, SLA Commander, Major. Gen. Mahintha Kathurasinghe told media that there are no abductions, killings, sexual abuse of women and robbery in Jaffna peninsula asking the public to inform him if any such incident takes place, the sources added.

However, public organizations in the peninsula express concern and accuse the law enforcing authorities for turning a blind eye to the incidents of abduction, extortion, killings, sexual abuse of women and night robbery alleged to be done by men who collaborate with SLA intelligence unit and the police.

The sexually abused young woman was on her way to Thunnaalai in Karaveddi in Vadamaraadchi from her house in Polika’ndi coast in Vadamaraachi.

Jaffna peninsula residents are in a shocked state witnessing the violence which keeps escalating at an alarming rate and the cultural deterioration that erodes young people in the peninsula.
