[Updated :: 2010-05-06 13:30:30
Contrasting the reports published in some electronic and print media
on a Grade 5 school girl reported missing from MANIPPAI area after
she went to MANIPAY VIVEKANANDA VIDYALAYA on 06th May was found
hiding herself inside a nearby house the following day.
Investigations conducted into the matter have revealed that the
11 year old girl, NAGULESHWARAN THENUJA of SANGARAPOLLAI LANE, MANIPAY
had been away from her home as a result of a family dispute.
Her father, who is said to be having two wives, is presently serving
a period of imprisonment during which animosity between the two
women gradually developed, according to Police investigations. As
little THENUJA was becoming a victim of the family dispute, her
mother had secretly taken her to another house nearby and kept tight-lipped
on the matter. Capitalizing the situation, a few media elements
with the malice intention of humiliating the security system in
Jaffna hurriedly misinterpreted the story and attempted to convince
the general public that it is one of so called abduction incidents
in the peninsula.
But, locating the said girl inside another house in the close vicinity
on the following day further confirmed that series of misreporting
of abductions and other criminal acts in Jaffna are baseless and
However, since a few organized parties are prepared to sabotage
the normalcy in Jaffna for meager interests, Security Forces are
on full alert to net the criminals.
Thus assassins responsible for the murder of 16 year old KABILAN
of CHAVAKACHCHERI between 14th and 27th March were arrested by the
Police two weeks ago.
Two more culprits who were directly involved in raping a young girl
on 16th March fell into the Police custody while they were trying
to avert the arrest.
Three other extortionists who kidnapped a garage owner in MANIPAY
on 20th March for ransom were traced and arrested by the Police.
Another incident was reported on 20th April from NAVALI area where
an unidentified group in a van attempted to abduct a twelve year
old boy but investigations into the matter found no concrete evidence
to ascertain that such an abduction attempt really took place.
Considering this situation, Jaffna security authorities wish to
draw the public attention on these news reports and inform to be
vigilant on anti social groups trying to endanger the prevailing
normalcy in the peninsula for personal gains. Security in some areas
is beefed up to maintain law and order and to ascertain public security.
