6-year-old SL refugee in TN raped and killed

E-mail Print
Security was strengthened at the Sri Lankan Refugee Camp in N.Mettupatti as tension prevailed over the murder of six-year-old Sirija alias Srinidhi.

According to police sources, the girl was raped before being killed. “The victim’s naked body was found in a cement pipe under the culvert on Tiruchi Road, about a kilometre from the camp, during the late hours of Sunday. The body had a deep slit on the throat and injuries on the arms. She could have been murdered elsewhere as there were no bloodstains in or near the pipe,” a police officer said.

Her mother Jayaseeli (38) said around 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sirija, the second of her three children, went out to the open ground near the camp to answer nature’s call. “We searched for her from 4 p.m. but could find only her body,” said the inconsolable mother.

N. Sivakumar (14) and his friend Dhayalan (11) said that they were playing cricket when they saw the girl come near the play area. “We asked her to go to a safer place as she could be hit by the ball. She immediately left the place,” they added. People in the camp wore a worried look and many of them did not go to work on Monday. “Sirija was liked by all for her smart talk and approach and it came as a shock when we found her dead”, said Saroja (46), a neighbour. According to her, it was the first such incident in the 20-year-old camp.

N. Navamani (27), another neighbour, said that most parents were daily wagers. “They usually go to the market in Valayapatti, about five km from the camp, on Sunday afternoons for their weekly purchase. The culprit involved in the cruel act could have taken advantage of this time to commit the crime”, she said.

Superintendent of Police (SP) M. Sathiya Priya said three special teams were formed under Additional Superintendent of Police G. Subbulakshmi and two Deputy Superintendents of Police to nab the culprit. “We are checking all the men in the camp. Search is on for her clothes as it could help in the investigation”, the SP said and added that the body was taken to the Namakkal Government Hospital on Sunday night and shifted to the Salem GH for post-mortem examination.

Meanwhile, people in the camp grew suspicious of a 29-year-old refugee and beat him up severely as he reportedly told campers that the girl could not be found in a particular direction. But the body was found from the direction he came. People said that he was known for stealing clothes of adolescent girls and was warned in the past,” police said. He was admitted to Namakkal General Hospital. (The Hindu)

but a 6 year old girl for god's sake - it's wrong to accept any form of rape but molesting a 6 year old is just absoulutely sick. What does a 6 year old child know... iand then she was murdured so among two diplorable acts against humanity this is easily on top.

If you look at the child rapes happening in SL, it is 10 times more while India has proportionately thousand time higher population. Certianly the Indian police will find the culprit in no time, where in SL they will dither and blame every mother than themselves. Further more, if this happened in Jaffna, it will not even get reported. The EPDP rapist of Delft island is still a free bird, remember.

why these Sri Lankan people stay there without coming to Sri Lanka. They are Sri Lankan's and not indians. I believe they have more protection here than in India.

Sadly this innocent daughter victimised to her own people around. It must be by someone who were very near, very close and known to her. Violence has no area, no race, no religion or no nationality. This must be stopped forthwith. Find culprits and impose maximum punishment.

When I read all these comments, feel like except very few sensible comments, most of Sri Lankans are blaming and passing the ball to others....It is not about other countries and it is social plight....we need immediate capital punishments for these kind of ill fated people...Otherwise, in near future we will classify as uncivilized society...

Don't use this news for Political leverage. Every community has a very few of these animals hidden, and it is unfortunate that this happened in Tiruchi, which has more deciplined pple than SL, though poverty lurks.

Why did they flee to India? Because of the war between the LTTE and the army. Now the war is over. Why don't they return to their native place? We have to think about this on humanitarian ground.

The desperate sicko who could harm a 6 yr old should remove himself from this world, if he has any remorse and guts. This is a little child/daughter, so don't talk of SL worse or better than India crap. What is bad is bad and vice versa. Children belong to all of us. It is our responsibility to care for them.

Its really not about India or Sri Lanka. The main issue here is that someone was pathetic and inhuman enough to rape and murder an innocent 6 year old girl. It doesn't matter in which country she was in or her nationality, what should be done is to find that heartless person who committed this cruel crime and punish him for what he did. A child is a child irrespective of where he/she is from and as adults we should ensure their safety. Children gets raped not only in India and Sri Lanka but all over the world. Instead of blaming each other its high time we get our acts together and not only make our countries but our world a better place for our future generation.
