The tortured victim, Vijayarajah Vijayarooban, was abducted Friday at a private tuition centre located near the A9 road inside the SLA militarized High Security Zone in Chavakacheri town where he was working as a part time teacher.

Mr. Vijayarooban was brought in a white van, in tortured state, and pushed down out of the van Monday around 11:00 a.m. at the place from where he was abducted last Firday, his father said.
