2 students reported missing in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Monday, 17 March 2008, 15:17 GMT]
Two students, aged 11 and 15, are reported missing since Sunday after having left on bicycles their homes in Kokkuvil East in Jaffna, according to complaints lodged by their mother with Human Rights Commission (HRC) Jaffna office Monday. The students, after first visiting their relatives at Kantharmadam in Jaffna, had proceeded on bicycle to another relative’s house in Chaavakachcheari in Thenmaraadchhi, the mother said in her complaint.

The two students had not returned home after leaving to Chaavakachcheari from their relative’s house in Kantharmadam.

HRC officials had notified about the two missing students to police authorities in Kokuvil.

The disappearance of the two students has created fear among the residents of Jaffna peninsula where incidents of abduction allegedly by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) troops and SLA-backed paramilitaries have escalated in recent times.
