Child dies after alleged attack

The body of an 11-year-old child was found at Navalar Road, Periya Kallar on Sunday (10) and the body was sent to the Batticaloa Teaching Hospital for postmortem. It was revealed that the child’s mother had gone to the Middle East for employment. The child had lived with her mother’s younger sister in Colombo and the child was mentally affected as well.

Two days back the Grama Niladhari received a complaint that the child had been attacked at her grandmother’s place. He admitted the child to the Kallar District Hospital. Last Friday (8) the mother’s younger sister brought the child home from the hospital and the child was found dead.
