A ten year old girl who had gone missing from the Baduraliya area two years ago was yesterday found by the police in Kuruwita while allegedly being kept by a man in his forties.

She was referred to the Judicial Medical Officer by the Ratnapura Magistrate for a report as to whether she had been sexually abused. Police are now on the look out for the man who has fled the area.

The crime had come to light following investigations by the Kuruwita police on a telephone call received on the police emergency line that a ten year old girl had been stranded.

She had been just 8 years when she went missing while studying at a school in the Magura area in the Baduraliya police division. She had been taken away by a man while she was on her way to school. It had been revealed that the man had come to their house on earlier occasions as well.

The man had taken her away saying her father was being treated at the Ratnapura hospital after falling off a tree. The man who took her away had been staying with her at several estates in Ratnapura, Balangoda, Kahawatte and Batathota. The man had obtained line rooms to stay in those estates by saying that the girl was his daughter and her mother had died. It had come to light that he had locked her up in the room during day time to go to work and returned in the evening and stayed with her. According to the girl the man might have been in his mid or late forties.

However, by the time police found the girl the man had gone missing. He had come to a private estate in Kuruwita with the girl several months ago and a week ago had left the girl at a nearby boutique promising to come back after attending to an emergency matter. But he had not turned up even after the lapse of a week. The girl was taken into custody by a police team which included women police officers led by Kuruwita OIC IP R.P. Siriwardena and crimes OIC SI C.M.G. Chandrasekera.

She had told police about her parents but had only vaguely recalled details of her school. The police had been able to locate her parents by providing the information to the State Intelligence Services and the education ministry.

 The mother of the girl had told police that they had given up hope about their eldest child and even conducted memorial almsgivings on behalf of her.

The girl had revealed to police that she was not allowed to speak to anyone after she was taken away by the suspect. During the first few months he had even tied her inside the line room when he was away at work. It had also been alleged that she had been sexually abused by the suspect man.

The girl was produced before the Ratnapura Magistrate who ordered that she be left in the care of a children’s home. (Ajithlal Shantha Udaya)

    I have a baby daughter, my feet were freezing and heart started beating so fast while reading this, i hope and pray that this should never happen to any parents.
    Hope this child gets proper counselling and returned back to the parents, she should be compensated and put back to school.
    All Parents, please put some effort to take care of the children, make sure they are advised to be very vigilant about these predators.
    Coming back to this monster, he should be shot in public so it will be lesson for other pedophiles.

    Don't be over excited !! If he belongs to the power circle,then we hear the story as a 'tele drama rehearsal or something of that sort !!

    wild Friday, 05 October 2012 06:33 AM

    tie him on a lamp post and give the liberty to the public to do what ever they wish !!

    Cobra Friday, 05 October 2012 12:54 AM

    I know what I'd do if I caught this monster and it won't be just stinging him!!!!!

    Fair N Square Friday, 05 October 2012 01:32 AM

    woah.. what a monster? Hang the fellow, putting in jail is waste of resources that he doent need to be provided with...

    Gadzooks Friday, 05 October 2012 01:43 PM

    These pitiful and sarcastic comments surely suggest a terrible malaise in this country.

    mofaruk Friday, 05 October 2012 07:56 AM

    We all made serious comments today but we forget this tomorrow and continue commenting on another story. As decent citizens we all must at least push the media to follow-up and update the public what finally happens to the person who committed the serious crime. Daily mirror has a bigger responsibly to do this. If it is in the west they would have setup a website etc, etc, and give media publicity when the missing is reported until they find the person. In SL we don’t have much of these technologies but we can do in our own ways… newspapers, radio broadcast, announcements through local temple, mosque, church etc.,

    this fellow should be apprehended at all costs, given a thorough thrashing and thrown in prison for life.

    dev Saturday, 06 October 2012 05:01 AM

    My Question to HRC : Do you need to protect human rights of these type of Monsters ??????????????

    Jayraj Friday, 05 October 2012 08:08 AM

    The question is, who is this man, has he got good connections to a politician, if so, he will be never found.

    Geraldine Friday, 05 October 2012 02:55 PM

    Why? Why? Why?......god, is there a God above???

    Pondering Friday, 05 October 2012 02:56 AM

    Hanging him is a way too quick a death for this monster. Cut the legs off at the knees, and the hands at the wrists. Tattoo his face with a recognized mark of a child molester. let him suffer for the rest of his life. Make his fate public knowledge, and watch the child molestation rate drop.

    Kamala Friday, 05 October 2012 02:55 AM

    But why the child has to be in a children's home, why not her own house????

    Kossa Friday, 05 October 2012 03:11 AM

    people should be on alert about these situations at all times in all places.....

    Fassey Friday, 05 October 2012 03:28 AM

    This monster should be buried alive for his crime of abusing a child. Why send the child to a children's when the police have found the mother?

    Zeidan Friday, 05 October 2012 03:24 AM

    Wel done Kuruwita police team. Will whenthey catch this monster? When will they?

    Automatic Friday, 05 October 2012 03:27 AM

    He need to go to jail for life. The other prisoners will take care of him. They hate it when children are abused.

    Shan Friday, 05 October 2012 03:45 AM

    Introduce the Gallows as early as possible and activate that with these types of monsters in the country.

    sayan Friday, 05 October 2012 05:54 PM

    Hang the fellow...hello do you know there is no hanging in sri lanka...though you get death sentence...the prisons doesn't operate the gallows...this is a Buddhist country...so JRJ not only stopped it, he released a rapist and a contract killer by the name Gonawala Sunil...so everybody lived happily ever after...

    Farzan Friday, 05 October 2012 04:20 AM

    THE SUSPECT SHOLD BE PUNISHED AT THE LEVEL BEST FOR SPOILING THE LIFE OF THIS INNOCENT CHILD.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Friday, 05 October 2012 10:27 AM

    After what happened in Kahawatte, this is really nothing and if the culprit has some pollitical influence, we will hear nothing of this story hereafter.

    Tintin Friday, 05 October 2012 10:15 PM

    Dont blame God. God gave humans free will. And a brain to think with.

    Shaik Ahamath Saturday, 06 October 2012 08:16 AM

    I agree. The chid is already traumatised and the only place she will receive undying love and affection that will rehabilitate her would be with her own parents.
