A female graduate, who is a development officer, was arrested by the Pallewela Police for allegedly pouring boiling water on her 73-year-old mother.

The suspect’s brother, a law student, was also arrested for obstructing the police officers from arresting his sister.

Last Friday, the elderly woman had been at her home in Kaleliya, Kotakanda when the incident had taken place. She had been admitted to the Wathupitiwala Hospital with burn injuries.

When the police had surrounded the house to arrest the suspects, they had kept their father inside a room by force as a hostage in order to evade the arrest.

However, the police had tactically taken the suspects into custody. Both father and the mother who became victims of the cruelty had been admitted to the Wathupitiwala Hospital.

The two siblings are to be produced in courts and a report to be obtained on the mental health of the suspects. (P. Mallawarachchi)

    Condemn this inhuman brutal act of sister and brother. You will one day suffer the same fate at your children's' hand.

    Maximum punishment within the law. Additionally they should be asked to pay the cost of keeping the parents in a suitable elder's home.

    Passing thousand one exams and getting millions of degrees do not make a person educated!

    What is the use of all the "prith chanting" and "bana" when this type of incidents are reported. It is time the Buddhist monks educate the people than protecting corrupt politicians.

    The Bible commands...."Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. 2“Honor your father and mother” (which is the first commandment with a promise), 3“that it may go well with you and that you may be long-lived on the earth.”…(Ephesians 6:1-3)
