Family man abducted in Jaffna High Security Zone

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 26 March 2008, 17:21 GMT]
A young family man was abducted Tuesday around 5:00 p.m at Paa’ndiyan Thaazhvu, Ko’lumbuththu’rai in Jaffna, an area within the High security Zone (HSZ) of Sri Lanka Army (SLA), according to complaint made by his wife to Human Rights Commission (HRC) Jaffna, sources in Jaffna said. The man had earlier been placed in the protective custody in Jaffna Prison due to death threats by SLA troops and SLA-backed paramilitaries, the sources added.

The abducted man is Subramaniam Janarthanan, 30, a resident of Paa’ndiyan Thaazhvu in Ko’lumpuththu’rai.

He was placed in the protective custody in Jaffna Prison until 30 October 2007 when he was admitted to Jaffna Teaching Hospital for treatment for chicken pox.

Janarthanan chose to return home after treatment and was abducted Tuesday evening as he was going to St. Anthony’s church for prayers.
