A 29-year-old mother in Kolonnawais reported to have strangled her six-year-old daughter for defecating inside the house.

The Police said Fathima Sakya had been regularly beaten by her mother for defecating inside the house.

The mother had admitted the little girl to the Lady Ridgeway Hospital saying she had fainted in the garden but she was dead on admission to the LRH.

The mother was arrested by the Wellampitiya police after the girl’s elder brother revealed that his mother strangled his sister.

The girl was to attend school next year.

    Why on earth these parents need to kill a child when there are so many other options available? Many parents need proper counseling on parenting, i hope this child did not have an agonizing death.

    This is hardly a matter of capital punishment--it is one of poverty and education. I can only imagine that the mother never taught her daughter what to do and that she did not provide even the most basic of toilets for the child.

    All religious places must start counselling seriously for their people rather than only preaching for worshiping. via DM Android App
