A 22-year-old man was arrested by the CID on charges of having sexually harassed young girls especially schoolgirls by threatening them on Facebook that he possessed their nude pictures and would publish them if the girls refused to meet him.

The breakthrough came when a Sri Lankan undergraduate studying in Australia received a threatening message from the man on Facebook when she was on holiday in Sri Lanka.

She then lodged a complaint with the CID. It was the second such complaint received by the CID against the culprit who is a resident of Panadura.

Investigations revealed that the suspect’s father had bought him a mobile phone worth around Rs.50,000 when he was 17 years of age and later a laptop from the money his father obtained from the sale of a land.

He is said to have used these gadgets to engage in such activities for a considerable period of time. (Supun Dias)

    Minaz, there's a truth in your quote if the parents gives such electronic gadgets to undisciplined and uncontrollable youngsters. Think of the said ' Sri Lankan undergraduate studying in Australia'' who should be of the same age or even lesser - her discipline made her to complain to the authorities - [from a country where even Year 7 student would posses advanced phones, I pads, Lap tops etc etc]

    The fault is not purchasing expensive gadgets. But not knowing their childrens literacy level and not eying on them. via DM Android App
