JVP dissident group member Dimuthu Attygala, who was reportedly missing along with Kumar Gunaratnam, has turned up at the party office in Madiwela a short while ago. She is to address the media conference shortly, our reporter said.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror Waruna Rajapakshe a leading member of the Frontline Socialist Party said that she was dropped off near the parties head office in Madiwela and was given money to use a trishaw by the abductors.

Addressing the press conference Attygala said that abductors wanted to know her party’s future political road map.
“They questioned me extensively about the activities of my party and its future political road map. Since I am the head of the international wing, they asked about our international links. They wanted to know whether we have established contacts with the pro-LTTE Tamil diaspora. I denied it. Also, they wanted to know whether we have an international funding sources,” she said.

 “I was blindfolded and taken to a distant location which I cannot remember. I was terrifies because I feared for my life. I was hit once. Later, I heard them saying that they should not physically assault a woman,” she said.
Her narration took a different turn when she mentioned that her abductors spoke in favour of the JVP from which she defected last year over what she termed as ideological clashes. 

“They said that I had to suffer this fate because of what Idid to the JVP. Some of them cited the JVP as a good political party. They did not approve the kind of politics which we are planning to do. I tried to convince them that we defected from the JVP on policy differences. I assured that we will not take up arms. Once I was brought to the presence of comrade Kumar Gunaratnam abducted on the same day. They asked the same questions separately from us,” she said.

Asked whether she suspected the JVP’s involvement, she said, “I cannot draw any conclusion. Yet, I got a feeling about such an involvement from the manner in which some abductors spoke.”

During her detention at an unidentified location, she said she was given food. Also, she said that a lady had been assigned to help whenever she wanted to use the washroom. (Kelum Bandara)

    Ravi, these are the very people like you that hate your country of birth and the people who live in there. How could you hope and wish for NATO to bomb, kill and maim the people who live in your homeland. You are nothing but full of hatred and should be ashamed of yourself.

    CW Tuesday, 10 April 2012 10:18 AM

    Make her talk in front of a lie detector. Bloody Socialists. Full of lies. Why did your leader use so many aliases? Trying to fool the Govt. or the innocent public? Do we vote for these liars?

    Please don't mention Mahatma Gandhi and Anagarika Dharmapala in the same sentence. One sought to unify different communities for a strong nation, the other sowed seeds of communal discord which weakened a nation.

    newman edward Tuesday, 10 April 2012 10:25 AM

    It may be your wish... Remember Sri lanka is not another "Afghanistan".

    Sam Tuesday, 10 April 2012 11:04 AM

    Moda Ravi, deam on mate, you must be definitly related to Ravi Pamankada. NETO have more important things to do rather than helping LTTE and JVP

    Hide & seek?

    hello Tuesday, 10 April 2012 06:07 AM

    No wonder the UNHCR resolution got passed. I am sorry for the locals with no external support/ help and not coming out when abducted.

    Dutugemu-1 Tuesday, 10 April 2012 06:21 AM

    If abducted person is a foreign national he has a chance to get released.what a shame .

    Siri Tuesday, 10 April 2012 06:22 AM

    Good actress.

    lal Tuesday, 10 April 2012 06:23 AM

    Unusual ending to a kidnapping. Usually kidnappers demand a ransom, or harm the victims. Anything is possible including the two alleged victims having a good time somewhere.

    Dalu Bandara Tuesday, 10 April 2012 06:32 AM

    I remember the "kottoruwa" and "Kehel Gaha".

    Saranga Tuesday, 10 April 2012 06:33 AM

    this was timely planned,,,, the whole drama and good luck sri lanka for another insurgency

    Fair N Square Tuesday, 10 April 2012 06:14 AM

    it wasnt the Australian embassy but the foreign minister/try

    jacoobja Wednesday, 11 April 2012 06:46 AM

    The total sum is
    (a) You have two names white van will be after you.
    (b) If you are foreign national , you have a chance to escape
    (c) If white van takes you along with a foreign national , you have a chance to escape
    (d) Rest depends on Gota and his pet shark !

    Fair N Square Tuesday, 10 April 2012 06:27 AM

    Stop thing of a Mater sevant mentality. THe Brits made u blv u hae to be a servant for the rest fo urlife, Freedom fighters like Mahathma Gandhi, Anagarika Dharmapala and others might be rolling in their graves...

    lakmal Tuesday, 10 April 2012 06:57 AM

    ravi Tuesday, 10 April 2012 06:59 PM

    Dear Louisa you have don it to us from 1957 & 1983 uptoday..

    Sena Tuesday, 10 April 2012 08:42 PM

    Dutugemenu your comment" If abducted person is a foreign national he has a chance to get released.what a shame" .The much much bigger shame is that people are being abducted in
    Sri lanka .And it looks like the defense ministry has a good handle on these abductions where they can make abductees "surface" at short notice
