Ka’luvaangchik-kudi police had instructed the two complainants to report at the police station Thursday evening and the two men who had abducted and assaulted the bank employees were near the police station in civil clothes when the complainants went to the police station, according to complaints made to Batticaloa District Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian, K. Selvarajah.

The bank employees said that the two men who grabbed and forcibly took them away in a vehicle spoke fluent Sinhala and Tamil.

The abductors had assaulted both bank employees during Thursday night and had later dumped one of them at Onthaachchimadam and the other at Mahizhoor.

The two bank employees had complained to Ka'luvaagnchik-kudi police of the abduction and assault and to Batticaloa district MP, K. Selvarajah.

MP Selvarajah visited the two bank employees who are admitted to hospital and immediately brought the incident to the attention of superior police authorities in Batticaloa district.

Fear and tension prevail among the residents of Batticaloa following the incident.
