A 10-year-old schoolboy living at Kapurugoda in Panagoda is reported to have been hacked to death today and his body was recovered from an abandoned house in the area.

Police said the victim Kavindu Devinda Kapuruge was a grade-five student at Panagoda Sri Parakrama Vidyalaya. They said the body was found in a pool of blood in the abandoned house, which had been occupied by a quarry worker from another area.

His meals had been supplied by the child’s parents during his stay in the area. However, the man had gone missing after the incident and the police suspect him for the killing. A senior police official said the motive for the killing had not been established.

The child’s father said he found the child missing from home today morning and searched for him with several others only to find his mutilated body in the abandoned house. Athurugiriya police are conducting investigations. (Irangi Edirisinghe and Buddika Kumarasisri)

    If you have noticed carefully since the day this new government took over, there are deaths occurring everyday, I am not telling is based on any political side, although I am a UNP`er, but if you read all the online papers daily you will see the number of deaths on a daily basis and this is on the rise...the murders seem to freely roaming.

    Previous government had only state murders and disappearences

    Vigilant Friday, 25 September 2015 06:00 PM

    Are you suggesting its inaction of the government? These are the legacies of inaction and pronotion to crime all this while and swift action with gallows need to be introduced.

    Religion has nothing to do with these dastardly acts but the result of social decay brought about by the worst kind of politicians. The citizens of this country who had been blamed for the state of politics did do much to rectify their mistakes but unfortunately the show goes on even with the so called Yahapalanaya.

    This was nurtured for the last 10 yrs. It will take another 10 yrs to curtail .

    all we need is a capital Islamic punishment for crimes in Sri Lanka to get these lunatics scared for their lives.

    TONY Friday, 25 September 2015 07:31 PM

    WE SHOULD SET UP A SPECIAL COURT TO DISPOSE OF THESE KINDS OF CRIME ON FAST TRACT AND DELIVER JUDGEMENT WITHIN 1 MONTH. THEN PROBABLY THE RATE WILL COME DOWN

    Samanthi Friday, 25 September 2015 08:41 PM

    I fully agree with you. I dont understand why the hell that the government is silent on these. Feel so sorry that we are born in this country.

    Where is BBS ?????

    Prometheous Friday, 25 September 2015 03:26 PM

    2500 year old culture at its best. Dharmarajyata jaya weva!

    WHERE DOES THAT MONK LIVE WHO PROTESTED AGAINST EXECUTION BY HANGING ....... KILL HIM FIRST.

    citizen Friday, 25 September 2015 03:56 PM

    There are no comment about this incident, all are blowing their trumpets when a crocodile was dead.Shame on you people, human life is million times more valuable than any living creature on this planet

    Joseph Friday, 25 September 2015 03:59 PM

    What is happening to this country?

    dinesh Friday, 25 September 2015 04:07 PM

    Atrocious period of time. Where are we heading to.....

    Kaite Monday, 28 September 2015 10:22 AM

    Yahapalanaya has nothing to do with the mindset of an individual. When Satan rules the world this is what happens.

    dinesh Friday, 25 September 2015 04:12 PM

    What a tragedy. Value of human life has gone down to record low. Even a child cannot escape now.

    suresh Friday, 25 September 2015 04:25 PM

    bad year for kids....

    lee Friday, 25 September 2015 04:32 PM

    Why do you have to tie this upto religeon? why not blame the legal system instead? If not for buddhism this place would have been like a zoo...

    Grace Friday, 25 September 2015 04:32 PM

    Not allowing for a sexual act ......this is the first excuse of the police

    dham Friday, 25 September 2015 05:01 PM

    dont know where this country direct to looks like living in early days via DM Android App

    CitizenPerera Friday, 25 September 2015 05:01 PM

    Has ISIS or ISIL infiltrated Sri Lanka? Else are we showing our true saintly and "untainted 3000 year old culture"?
