Chennai, April 23 (IANS) Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa and her predecessor and DMK chief M.Karunanidhi Monday urged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to take urgent steps for the release of Chhattisgarh's Sukma district collector Alex Paul Menon, kidnapped by Maoists Saturday.

Jayalalithaa urged the prime minister to take immediate steps towards securing the early and safe release of the abducted officer and thereby bring relief to his family members.
