The owner of a tourist hotel in Akuressa and five others were taken into custody by the Matara Division Women and Children’s Bureau last morning on the charge of rape of a 13-year-old girl. Three hotel mangers and a woman who aided and abetted the crime were among them.

Sources said the officials of the bureau had to search at least six hotels in the area to arrest the suspects. Earlier, the Pitabeddara Police had arrested seven suspects involved in the incident.

However, it is alleged that the girl had been raped first by the arrested woman’s husband who allowed others to rape her.

Police said the schoolgirl from a remote village in the Pitabeddara Police area had been gang raped at times by more than 30 individuals, and 20 of them were identified.

Meanwhile, a senior police officer stated that a man in robes who was also involved in the incident had fled the area.

The suspects in custody were produced in court and remanded.

Women and Children’s Bureau OIC Waruni Bogahawatta, Sergeants 55850 G. Sumathipala and 50077 Ananda, PCs 37982 Chandana, 60838 Manoj and 71437 Sampath, WPCs 7533 Madushika and 7646 Shiromi are conducting further investigations on the instructions of Matara Division SP G.H. Marapana, DIG Sumith Edirisinghe and Senior DIG Chandana Wickremeratne to arrest the absconding suspects. (Krishan Jeewaka Jayaruk)

    No need to send them to prison. Just spill out their identity. That will ensure not only theirs but their entire families names to be tarnished for ever. Imagine what their children will face in society when they say 'gang rapists son or daughter' ?. Thats the treatment that should be given. Prison would be a waste.

    Commendable work by Police. If only police could do 99% of this kind of work instead of being corrupt, doing hench-aiya work for politicians, covering up deeds, then this country would automatically be unstoppable.

    These crooks should be shamed by posting their pictures in the media. This would deter others from such acts. via DM Android App

    These scum should all be given the maximum penalty. This child will be scared mentally and physically for the rest of her life. This is the most heinous act of rape we have seen so far. I hope the law will not be partial to any of these vermin when meting out justice.

    Sri Lanka's infamous sadistic brutalities such as this and gang rape and murders at Tangalle, kataragama, Jaffna and scores of others are the unfortunate material that masks a cultured and civilised Buddhist heritage.
