The 17-year-old schoolboy and 32-year-old man who were remanded in connection with Seya Sadewmi’s murder were today discharged by the Minuwangoda Magistrate.

They were released by the magistrate as there was no evidence to prove the case.

The CID today informed Court that the DNA samples of the two suspects do not match those recovered from the body of the murder victim Seya Sadewmi. (Tony Karunanayake)

    Going to be another unsolved crime. Police should act fast and steady to maintain their reputation.

    What about the "confessions" obtained by the very "efficient" Sri Lanka Police??? The Sri Lanka police is a joke. A complete joke.

    Poor school boy.. now who is going to take the responsible for tarnishing his name ?? The police or the Media? One kind request to the media why dont you guys follow the small ad that is published in all papers by the press commission. right of reader or something..!! we know that the media is very poor in our country... what ethics for them as long as they publish something rubbish and earn.

    so they needed to prove their innocence to be released? This why we need international judiciary for war crimes, our judiciary will convict without the case being proved beyond all reasonable doubt.

    By keeping two innocent people under custody,Kotadeniya police played a deceptive game to hide their inefficiency and incompetency.

    Now who will pay for the irreparable damaged done to the dignity of this school boy?

    Eddy Thursday, 01 October 2015 03:50 PM

    Its funny when the cops screw up no big position names are mentioned as when there is a good bust.

    tlogi Thursday, 01 October 2015 04:16 PM

    All these time the police kept them wothout any evidence?what a pathetic situation. These officers must be charged so that another similar situation wont arise. It ruins innocent peoples life

    They must be generously compensated and fully rehabilitated. Bad job done by the police. This should not happen.

    brainmaster Thursday, 01 October 2015 04:20 PM

    What about the DNA of the 3rd arrested ?

    BuffaloaCitizen Thursday, 01 October 2015 04:30 PM

    Sri Lanka Police joins some of the most incompetent police persons of the world for shameless sheer basic incompetency.

    lal surain Thursday, 01 October 2015 04:42 PM

    moda police

    saranapala Thursday, 01 October 2015 06:17 PM

    Police chief is responsible for this crime. I really feel for the school boy. Taken naked photographs of teenager, beat him etc. Somebody should be accounable for this mismanagement of the arrest.

    nimalu Thursday, 01 October 2015 07:00 PM

    Guilty until proven innocent - justice Sri Lankan style.

    Henry Saturday, 03 October 2015 12:51 PM

    Very Correct the media should publicly apologize at the highest level.
