Police arrested two youths in Gonawila South in Dankotuwa over the abduction of a 17-year-old schoolboy.  

The police said that the two youths were the friends of the schoolboy.

Accordingly police suspect that the kidnapping had been masterminded by the abducted student himself.

Police said that since the student concerned was currently sitting for the O/L examination, he would be arrested at the end of the examination.

On Tuesday this week, it was reported that a certain group had abducted the 17-year-old schoolboy while he was playing at the Dankotuwa -Godella School playground.

The night of the abduction the schoolboy phoned his father and told him that the abductors were demanding a 77.5 million rupee ransom.

Subsequently the father had informed the police.

Investigations lead to the student being found on Wednesday morning in an abandoned oil mill in the vicinity.
