The suspect who pushed his wife and youngest daughter into the sea, in a confession to the police, said that he had wanted to get rid of his wife so that he could marry a woman who he had not even seen.

He said the woman, who had identified herself as Madushika, was from Kurunegala, but he had not even seen her to date. He explained that he had got her phone number by accident, after he dialed a number incorrectly.

He was arrested by the police on charges of pushing his wife and daughter into the sea at Mahapalana in Kosgoda. The child drowned in the sea while his wife survived the fall. He however explained that he had not intended to kill his daughter and that he was forced to do so because when he asked his wife to hand the child over to him she had refused to let go of her and a result both had fallen off the rock after he pushed his wife over.

He had previously asked his wife to take the younger child to the beach with them so as not to arouse suspicion that he was going to harm her. (Hemantha De Silva)

    Katie Monday, 21 September 2015 10:17 AM

    It is certainly murder and more planned

    Casanova Monday, 21 September 2015 10:23 AM

    You are right bro, he is insane as he didnt learn the ART of cheating.

    Mason Monday, 21 September 2015 11:49 AM

    This character is insane. He wants to marry a woman he has not even seen. Has no qualms in pushing his wife and infant to death.Another murderer to be stoned in public plus amputation of arms that pushed them.

    Rubert Monday, 21 September 2015 12:28 PM

    He tried removing his daughter from the wife before the move, but the woman suspecting his move refused to budge so he pushed both the wife and the kid and executing a pre-meditated murder plan. It is day light murder. Hopefully the police will take him to trace his weapons tonight.

    The man really looks like a idiot

    Sapu Monday, 21 September 2015 01:34 PM

    Another on the list for death sentence

    Sammy Monday, 21 September 2015 01:57 PM

    This is taking the adage "love is blind" to its extreme. The guy must be off his rocker.

    roshan Monday, 21 September 2015 03:39 PM

    killing an innocent wife and an infant is so simple for this guy? this guy does not need counseling. he deserves to be hanged... killing so easy and so simple these days. cos these fellow are confident that they will be out in few years time...

    de silva Monday, 21 September 2015 08:49 AM

    Was that not a murder.

    When we were small, we used have a special period of 30minutes in which we were taught religion and how to practice it in real life and also civic responsibilities. I think this be made compulsory for all schools in Sri Lanka irrespective of ones religion to reduce rate of crimes.

    RDF Monday, 21 September 2015 03:45 PM

    This man is insane, religion has nothing to do with it.

    The God Father Monday, 21 September 2015 09:18 AM

    Where is this Buddhist country heading to? Honestly this guy is insane and needs therapy. The new government should organize more counseling centers all around the country.
