White-van abductors demand 100 million ransom
Speaking in broken Tamil, a man claiming to have abducted the Colombo-based Tamil businessman Ramayasamy Prabakaran on Saturday, has demanded ransom of 100 million rupees over phone call, family members have told media Monday.
Mr. Prabakaran had been earlier detained by the Sri Lankan police for 28 months without any inquiries and was released last September by an SL court that didn’t find any specific charge against him.
Seeking justice and compensation from the SL authorities was possibly the reason behind his abduction, his business friends blamed.
Prabakaran, who hails from Badullla, is married to a Sinhala woman and he is a father of one.
