Farmer abducted in Achchuveali released in Jaffna town

[TamilNet, Sunday, 12 September 2010, 16:06 GMT]
A gang of unidentified persons arriving in a white van in Achchuveali Sunday morning bound the eyes and hands of a farmer working in his vegetable plot and took him away forcibly. The abductors had demanded 200,000 rupees and when the farmer said that he does not have such a big sum the abductors had reduced the amount demanded as an act of mercy, the farmer said in his complaint to Acchuveali police. The abductors had then pushed the abductee out of the van in Veampadi Road in Jaffna town located 25 kms from Achchuveali where there were a lot of people.

The abducted farmer is K. Sivakumar, 45, a family man from Achchuveali.

The abductors taking Sivakumar to a busy place in Jaffna town where Sri Lanka police and Army men are always present has created doubts and fear among the residents of Jaffna.

Meanwhile, Achchuveali police who confirmed the complaint declined to provide further details about the abduction.

The police said they are investigating into the complaint.
