A ten year old boy was taken into police custody today for allegedly setting fire to a house in Matara after being instigated by a woman to do so in exchange for a pet rabbit.

Investigations by the Matara police revealed that the woman had instigated the boy to burn down the house as an act of revenge on a man who was allegedly involved in murdering her son-in-law after he was killed in a recent clash between two groups in Matara.

The woman, who was also taken into custody along with the minor, had told the child she would give him a pet rabbit if she set fire to the man’s house.

Matara police are conducting further investigations. (Daily Mirror online)
