SL “Terrorist” division abducts 18-year-old student in VVT, Jaffna

[TamilNet, Saturday, 08 December 2012, 11:37 GMT]
An investigator attached to the so-called Terrorist Investigation Department (TID) of the Colombo regime, which functions under the direct command of the Sri Lankan Defence Ministry, on Thursday, phoned the family of an 18-year-old Tamil student, Arulampalam Dishokraj, who was abducted the previous day in Valveddith-thu'rai (VVT) in Jaffna. The TID official has informed the family that their missing son was under the custody of the TID for investigations. Another youth from Oo'ra'ni in VVT, 24-year-old Prasath Sivasampu, who was an ex-LTTE member, has been reported missing since December 01 when he left for Colombo. Meanwhile, the presence of SL military in the environs of the University of Jaffna was still threatening the students of the Jaffna university, the student union said Friday announcing that it will continue the protest till the students are released by the TID.

The abduction and detention of the 18-year-old student of VVT Sithampara College in Jaffna is viewed by the student community in Jaffna as part of the larger terror campaign waged against the Tamil students.

Upon the abduction of their son, the family had complained to the SL Human Rights Commission and the SL Police in VVT.

In the meantime, the alleged TID officer has made a call to the cell phone, which was at the house of the missing student, claiming that the student was being interrogated by the TID.

Apart from the phone call, there was no official record of his arrest, news sources in VVT said.

Some of Dishokraj's siblings had sacrificed their lives as the members of the LTTE in the armed struggle, the sources further said.
