A Tamil man was abducted by men claiming to be from the Terrorism Investigation Department on Sunday.
According to Ceylonews, Rajadurai Jeyanthan was at his house in Nunavil South, Chavakachcheri when the men took him in a white van. The white van abduction culture was very common over the past decades and came to be feared as many of those abducted never returned.
The sources told Ceylonews that Rajathurai Jeyanthan was among those who had gone through the government’s ‘rehabilitation’ programme after the end of the war.
His wife said that the abductors have only given her a telephone number and when contacted she was asked to come the CID office in Ariyalai, near Jaffna town.
“First two men in civvies came in motorbike were talking to him after confirming his identity. They said they were from the CID. Few minutes later a group of men, also in civvies, came in a white-van and checked the house before taking my husband away handcuffed,” she told Ceylonews.
“When we went to Ariyalai, we were not allowed to see him, instead were told to go to a CID office in Vavuniya. When we went to Vavuniya on the next day, we were told that my husband has been moved to Boosa. We have not heard of him since his abduction,” she further said.
