An exorcist who had abducted and raped a 15- year- old girl of Wanela in Anuradhapura was arrested by the Hali-Ela police during a raid at Alugolla last morning and rescued the abducted girl.   

The 36- year- old suspect was a resident of Galkulama in Anuradhapura who had been married to four women and had deserted them.   The suspect had cheated the teenager’s father and lived in her house under the pretext of digging up a treasure underground with the help of the girl, who he said was possessed by a demi god. The suspect had raped the girl and had later abducted her to Alugolla where they lived in a rented house and practised exorcism to make a living.   During the raid, the police seized the statues of idols, oil lamps, and other requisites in his Davala. Police said the victim would be referred to the JMO for medical examination.   Police team under OIC Crime Investigation Branch IP- Dayananda is conducting further investigations on the instructions of OIC Hali-Ela police CI Ruwan Gunatilleka and ASP Pradeep Weerasekara.
