Shocking reports of alleged rapes within 24 hours

By Damith Wickramesekera

A man and his two sons were taken into custody for allegedly raping two under-aged domestics employed at their home in Gampahawatte-Morawaka, police said yesterday. They said the victims aged 10 and 11 and their mother were working at the suspect’s home.

A third suspect-a friend of the two teenage boys, aged 19 and 20 is evading arrest, police said.
This was just one incident of alleged rape reported within 24 hours from various parts of the country, police said.

In other reported incidents, a 36-year-old man was arrested at Kaluwankerni in Eravur in connection with the alleged rape of a 15-year-old minor, police said. Investigations have revealed that the suspect and the victim were involved in a clandestine love affair for some time.

The girl who was in the early stages of pregnancy had told doctors at Ambalantota Hospital that she had been raped by a villager. The doctors in turn informed the police and the suspect was subsequently arrested.

In a horrendous case at Podaramulla in the Wadduwa police area a 30-year-old man was taken into custody after he is alleged to have raped his 60-year-old mother. The man was arrested after his mother had informed police.

In another related case a man was arrested at Aragaganwilla in Aluth Oya after he is alleged to have sexually molested a 12-year-old girl.
