Four charred bodies of a family have been found inside a house in Kawdana, Dehiwela this morning.

Police Spokesman Ruwan Gunasekara said the bodies were recovered from the ground floor of the three-storey building.

The bodies of a 65-year-old man, his 52-year-old wife, their 13-year-old daughter and a relative’s daughter were discovered by the Police after following an alert by the neighbours.

    If one looks at the past few years, we can see gruesome killings, mainly in the south generally not seen at the frequencies and levels anywhere else in this region. Is this the curse and natural retribution for the criminality we perpetrated to our own citizens in the north? Karma never fails.
