A woman suspected of defrauding over Rs. 5 million from devotees promising divine cures for different ailments was arrested by the Aralaganwila police after a complaint was made by a Kurunagela businessman who had given Rs. 2.3 million to cure his child.

The suspect is reported to have charged Rs. 30000 to 40000 from a single devotee to cure their illnesses. The victims in many cases had pawned or sold their belongings to come up with the necessary funds to pay the suspect.

    YOU CANNOT BLAME THE VICTIMS SINCE THEY WOULD HAVE FELT IT IS BETTER TO GO TO A CLAIRVOYANT RATHER THAN A 'DRUGLESS HOSPITAL'.

    How about arresting all those who hoodwinked a lot of people by promising a "great future"?

    can you also nab the politicians who promise so many things prior to elections and then do nothing.

    Isn't it also a similar case??????

    the kurunegela businessman must have been very influential,else if this complaint came from an ordinary person this action would have never been taken.

    Sanath R Friday, 23 July 2010 10:05 AM

    It is hard to believe that there are people still who are stupid enough to go behind such cheats.

    spark Friday, 23 July 2010 10:58 AM
