Former Tamil SLA accomplice abducted in Batticaloa

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 21 September 2010, 06:11 GMT]
A gang of unidentified armed men arriving in a van abducted a Tamil youth who had operated with Sri Lanka Army (SLA) during the war, on 15 September at Kalladi in Batticaloa district, according to complaints made by his wife to Batticaloa police. She had first complained at the office of Tamil Makkal Viduthalai Pulikal (TMVP), a political-cum-paramilitary party led by Eastern Province Chief Minister, Sivanesathurai Chandrakanthan alias Pillayan, raising suspicion whether he has joined TMVP on returning from a Middle East country where he had worked after the war, sources in Kalladi said.

The youth reported abducted is Munusamy Narenthiran, 30, a resident of Thiruchchenthoor in Kalladi.

Narenthiran married after returning from Middle East and was leading a normal life, the sources said.

Narenthiran’s abduction follows the recent abduction of a TMVP member of Batticaloa Municipal Council.

The Municipal Council member is alleged to have been abducted by SLA Intelligence wing men.

Meanwhile, a key TMVP person had blamed Sri Lanka government for the abductions in Batticaloa district.
