The police department has detected an increase in child abuse cases ranging from rape to sexual harassment with 850 such cases being reported this year.

Police spokesman Ajith Rohana said that the number is relatively high when compared with the last two years.

“Notably the children who fell prey to these suspects are ones who live alone or children who are isolated in the society,” he said.

“There is a police women and childrens bureau headed by a senior woman police officer in every police station. Priority is always given to such unfortunate incidents,” he said.

The Ministry of Justice and the Attorney Generals Department is cooperating with the police to resolve such cases. (By Supun Dias)
