Six suspects arrested for abusing schoolchildren

Kandy police arrested six persons for allegedly attempting to abuse schoolchildren in a public lavatory at the Kandy public market.

The suspects were arrested following a complaint made by a group of students from tuition classes in the city.

The students had complained to Kandy SSP Sudath Masinghe that they were abused whenever they went to the toilet.

Following the complaint, a group of police officers in civvies had been sent along with the students to the toilet and the six persons were arrested when the schoolchildren were in danger of sexual abuse, police said.

The suspects had been reprimanded and released as the students were reluctant to take legal action against them, police said.
