Six soldiers arrested over Noyahr’s abduction granted bail

The six soldiers arrested over the abduction of former journalist Keith Noyahr have been granted bail.

Last month an Army Major and four soldiers were arrested over the abduction.

Last week another Army intelligence officer was arrested over the incident.

Yesterday, a van believed to have been used in the abduction was found in Piliyandala.

Noyahr was abducted in May 2008 and was severely assaulted before being set free. (Colombo Gazette)
