The brother of the 16-year-old girl who died due to burn injuries while serving as a domestic helper in the house of former minister Rishad Bathiudeen said that his sister did not have the level of education to write something in English letters.
Responding after the police found a note on the wall of the room where she was staying, her brother Thiruprasad said that though his sister had the ability to write something, as far he knew, she did not have the level of education to write something in English letters.
He said that she was educated till Grade 7 at the Puwakpitiya Tamil Maha Vidyalaya in Avissawella.
Police have found a note written on the wall of the room in a way that gives a Tamil meaning in English letters.
Police said the meaning of the word is "the cause of my death".
Thiruprasad said that he did not know anything about the wording found in English letters in the room where his sister was staying. (Ranjith Rajapaksa)
