Jaffna police unaware of whereabouts of abducted Tamil Nadu traders

[TamilNet, Friday, 29 October 2010, 05:26 GMT]
The officer-in-charge of Jaffna police said that he does not have any information of the textile traders from Tamil Nadu abducted Saturday morning in Jaffna town from the lodges they were staying in, in response to questions raised by local media. He declined to answer when asked whether the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) officers from Colombo had arrested them. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka Army (SLA) spokesman in Colombo said that the traders may have been arrested for overstaying their tourist visa period. No official information about the abducted traders is available.

Meanwhile, the owners of the lodges had requested the address of the place where the traders are held so that they could return their belongings and money.

An armed gang alleged to be operating with the Intelligence Unit of Sri Lanka Army (SLA) had abducted Wednesday early morning the textile traders from Tamil Nadu staying in the lodges in Jaffna town.

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.
