Leader of Sri Lanka's Frontline Socialist Party abducted

FSP released this photo of Premakumar following the abduction
Frontline Socialist Party (FSP) of Sri Lanka says that the elusive leader of their party Premakumar Gunarathnam and another leader Dimuthu Atigala, a female, have been abducted.

Party spokesman Senadheera Gunathilaka said that Gunarathnam stayed in a house in Kiribathgoda last night following a discussion regarding the party convention scheduled to be held on April 09.

He had been alone there and a party member who went to the house in the morning around 4 a.m. has seen Gunarathnam's car with flat tyres and the house broke open. There had been signs of use of force in his room in which the bags had been opened and things in them were scattered.

Dimuthu Atigala had disappeared after she departed from Duminda Nagamuwa who accompanied her to  Thalawathugoda to take a bus to go to Godagama where she lived. FSP guessed she was abducted on her way to her house.

Apparently, Dimuthu Atigala was abducted before Gunarathnam and the latter's whereabouts were found through data in her phone.

Premakumar Gunarathnam was reportedly appear in public at the FSP convention that is to be held on April 09, party sources say.

He was a long time member of the People's Liberation Front (JVP) and broke away last year with a group of ultra leftist cadres of the party.

His wife, Champa Somarathna, a doctor who has migrated to Australia with her family, came to Sri Lanka by the end of the year and she was held and questioned by the authorities as she was returning through Katunayaka airport.

Two members of the group led by Premakumar were abducted in December 2010 and the authorities claim they are not in their arrest.

Police spokesman Ajith Rohana said today that he was unaware of the arrest of Premakumar Gunarathnam.
