2ND LEAD (UPDATE)

Tamil trader abducted in Colombo

[TamilNet, Saturday, 11 February 2012, 23:51 GMT]
A Tamil businessman of up-country origin, who owns an electronic business (Panorama Electronics) in Colombo, has been abducted Saturday around 3:30 p.m. in front of his house on Peniquick lane in Colombo 6, according to his family in Colombo. The victim, Mr. Ramasamy Prabakaran, had been earlier detained by the Sri Lankan police for 28 months without any inquiries and was released last September by the SL courts, the sources further said. Around 7 armed men, who came in vehicle, carried out the abduction.

The victim, who has been a successful businessman, recently filed a case claiming compensation from the SL authorities for having caused closure of his business for 2 years by keeping him jailed without providing any valid reason.

Prabakaran, who hails from Badullla, is married to a Sinhala woman and he is a father of one.

Seeking justice and compensation from the SL authorities was possibly the reason behind his abduction, according to Tamil businessmen, who are subjected to harassments by the Sri Lankan military establishment that claims large sums from them in order to run their businesses in Colombo.
