    Hundreds of Tamil women were kidnapped by the Indian Army in Jaffna,Wanni,Batticalo,Trincomalee,and Mannar but there is no one to give their names to the OMP. What happened to these women no one knows ? It is a disgrace that the Tamil Politicians Sampanthan and Sumanthiran are not doing anything about this and they are keeping very quiet.
