Unidentified armed men entering Ki’liveddi Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) welfare centre in Moothoor division in Trincomalee district Saturday night forcibly took away a man in the centre amid protests by fellow IDPs, sources in Moothoor said. The IDPs, displaced due to Sri Lanka Army (SLA) offensives, have been waiting for resettlement in their own villages.

The abducted man was identified as Sasikumar Veerakumar, 37.

The abduction has fuelled tension and fear among the IDPs in the centre as their security is at stake as armed gangs freely roam around IDP centres in the nights.
