As the extensive damage and loss of life caused by the Aranayake landslide made national headlines, another shocking story has emerged from the area involving an underage girl who had eloped twice with two young lovers within a span of two weeks and being sexually abused by both of them.

The underage girl’s two young boy friends aged 16 and 19 who had eloped with her were remanded after being arrested by the police.

The 14-year-old girl had initially eloped with her 16-year-old boy friend on May 22, but they were later found by the police in the Eppawela area.

The boy was taken into custody and remanded till May 31 over charges of abusing an underage girl.

The Judicial Medical examination had found that the girl had been sexually abused by the boy.

Within two weeks after the first lover was remanded, the girl had again eloped with another boy with whom she had also had a love affair. Police later found the girl with this 19-year old boy at a roadside in the Thabarawa area and arrested the boy.

The second judicial medical examination had revealed that the girl had also been sexually abused by the ‘second’ boy who was remanded till June 7 by the Mawanella Magistrate. (Saman Wijaya Bandara- Aranayake)

    Are you from child protection? How many here know underage marriages and underage pregnancies is rampant in former LTTE held areas?

    this girl and her parents should be sent for counseling. Bad parenting and lack of parent watching over their children is the result of this girl's acts. Somewhere down the line something has happened and she has got the taste of eloping. Don't only blame the boys. it take 2 hand to clap.

    The above comments would have given at least the majorcommunity girls correct themselves, even after the comments and the elders and the temples should give attention rather than wasting the time in Political stages..

    Wow so many racial comments from ethnicity-based critics on this page. What about genital mutilation, honor killings?? It seems people who comment here love to live in segregated communities promoting alien cultures. We have to give voluntary therapy solutions and social education to the minds of orphans and uneducated. Why are not rich people not willing to extend a voluntary helping hand in theses situations but only extend it only when there is natural disaster and also digitally rich people just blabber on sites, especially the minorities. Even girls in abayas and hijabs get raped and mutilated. The rich and senile communities want to burden the poor youthful community with carrying the heirlooms of their sick traditions, rather than promote interracial harmony, tolerance and compassion towards helpless youth.

    Josh, you have a point.

    The God Father Monday, 06 June 2016 12:36 PM

    True, so many racial comments including yours, religion or communities have nothing to do with these types of activities but poor parenting is the major reason, am sure this poor girl is from a broken family and needs counselling, our societies need proper helping hands and sexual education, lets hope our administrators get this right.

    Haha.. funny

    das Monday, 06 June 2016 12:47 PM

    Jealous??

    das Monday, 06 June 2016 12:49 PM

    Change is difficult and destabilising. People want to stay with tradition and resist change, no matter what.

    What a load of rubbish!

    Casanova Monday, 06 June 2016 01:28 PM

    Dude, you sound like you dont know about women, some women can control their feelings , some pretend that they control their feelings and some totally lose it. Ethnicity, religion and cultures have nothing to do with this, all we, men can do is to hope that we understand women. Pls refrain from making racist comments.

    Girl should have been examined at the very first incident to cross check her traumatic condition of any and whether she is in dire need of care by someone which was later misused by the guardian or bf.

    Dee Sunday, 05 June 2016 04:32 PM

    Looks like she will elope again to be sexually abused. They should send her for probation before arresting any more youth.

    Unchikuni Sunday, 05 June 2016 04:35 PM

    An area rich in "Love". What a better place than this? Why us Sri Lanka so unromantic?

    hasn Sunday, 05 June 2016 05:05 PM

    So many reasons for this.. and many types of sec outside marriage. .. sex available in plenty in Internet tvs handphones etc. Strict action needed against this. Then clothes worn by ladies should be not sexuallly attractive. Rapists should be put to death as in Saudi Arabia. Then this curry will be very good place to live

    josh Sunday, 05 June 2016 05:15 PM

    how did the ME know that the 2nd guy also abused her? he injuries or what ever could have been from the 1st guy and the girl made use of the situation to accuse the 2nd guy of rape..

    asoka Sunday, 05 June 2016 07:18 PM

    josh...what is your problem...?

    Bawa Sunday, 05 June 2016 07:26 PM

    It's possible to examine as to whether wether sexual contact was a recent one. What do you know about medical science.

    Cobra Sunday, 05 June 2016 07:58 PM

    Love never learns!!!

    Prometheous Sunday, 05 June 2016 07:59 PM

    No surprises. This is normal behavior among young Sinhala girls today. Sinhala girls start sexual activities much sooner than others in SL. The child protection authority or NCPA has clear data on this if anyone bother to check before calling me a racist.

    kanishka Monday, 06 June 2016 03:36 PM

    It takes TWO to tango.....She's no "THOTHA BABA"

    Shameful Sunday, 05 June 2016 08:04 PM

    This is the ugly truth about todays girls of the majority ethnicity in SL. Big contrast to the girls of the minorities. Tamil and Muslim girls are more conservative due to their high religious and cultural values compared to the majority ethnic group.

    Most of the television channels are responsible for spoiling minds of teenagers !. government has no control over quality of production telecasted on TV stations. specially Sirasa

    Leo Monday, 06 June 2016 06:18 AM

    Instead of blaming this and that SL should introduce rehabilitation places around the country and make such places known. And if they find such cases send the victims to the rehab places where the real problems for such actions could be uncovered. via DM Android App

    16 year old boy also is under age. So he should be released. 19 years old boy is over 18, but Sri Lankans are children even at 19.Sometimes you find girls as young as 14 , trying to stimulate and seduce older men. May be their genes or food thye eat and bad movies. 19 year old boy could have refused to take her.
