[TamilNet, Wednesday, 27 October 2010, 16:41 GMT]
An armed gang alleged to be operating with the Intelligence Unit of Sri Lanka Army (SLA) abducted Wednesday early morning the textile traders from Tamil Nadu staying in the lodges in Jaffna town, sources in Jaffna said. The abducted traders had not been produced in any of the court or police station in Jaffna peninsula until Wednesday night. The whereabouts of the abducted traders and their fate remains unknown.

The abducted traders from Tamil Nadu were engaged in business duly approved and allowed by Sri Lankan immigration authorities.

The traders stay in the lodges in Kasthooriyaar road junction and Kannaathiddi road junction in Jaffna town and take their wares brought from Tamil Nadu on bicycles to sell in the villages of Jaffna district.

Traders from Tamil Nadu had been engaged in selling textiles in the past too during Cease Fire Agreement period and after the opening of A9 land route to Jaffna.
