Medical staff, other employees and resident patients of Vavuniya Base Hospital staged a protest in the afternoon today against the abduction of Consultant Gynecologist & Obstetrician M.S.M.Mohideen. They demanded that he should be released immediately.

Unknown persons abducted Dr. Mohideen on the night of June 26, while he was returning home after duty in the hospital. His car was found abandoned some distance from his house.

The protests took place for the second day today and is expected to continue until he is released the hospital staff said today.

Meanwhile, Lucky Jayawardene the Deputy Inspector General of Police Vanni region in Vavuniya told local reporters this evening that the abduction of Dr.Mohideen in Vavuniya has nothing to do with the strike of the GMOA.

"Some elements have connected this incident with the strike of the medical officers in the country for their benefits. Vavuniya doctors are not on strike as the medical officers else where in the country are. It has absolutely nothing to do with the strike," he said.

He said the Police are conducting a thorough investigation into the abduction and so far the inquiries have not led to any suspicion to connect any one with the abduction he said.

"We are continuing the inquiries with an open mind" he added.
