Seya’s killing: Released persons hospitalised

2015-10-01 16:25:41

The 17-year-old student and the 32-year-old man, who were arrested in connection with the killing of Seya Sadewmi, were admitted to the Gampaha Hospital this afternoon.

The two had admitted themselves to undergo treatment for injuries claimed to be caused by the assaults of Kotadeniyawa Police officers.

They were arrested on charges of sexual abuse and killing of five-year-old Seya Sadewmi in Kotadeniyawa and were released today as their DNA samples did not match with those recovered from the body of Seya.  (Tony Karunanayake)

    Let us hope that the Doctors will make correct notes on the injuries to enable the injured/victims to take suitable action against Police if advised

    The sad part is (a) the medical treatment for police abuse is from public money (b) any compensation to victims will not be by Police but thru public money.

    All right-minded politicians and AG should unite to launch a compensation claim on behalf of victims. All policemen found guilty should be sacked forthwith.

    Punishment transfers, sackings are too good and this arrogance has gone on for too long. It is time criminal cases were actioned against the police.

    IGP himself should be accountable for this unjustifiable act. He always act low profile for everything. Eg. Thajudeen, Kotakethana innocent couple, two university students being killed in suspicious manner etc. etc. Hope justice will be done for this student and the other person.
