Police hunt Buttala cattle thieves

Police have commenced investigations into two complaints received regarding the theft of 14 cattle worth Rs.640,000 in the Hadapanagala Thalakolawewa area in the Buttala Police Division, recently.

A complaint has been lodged with the Buttala Police regarding the disappearance of these cattle on Tuesday. More than 30 cows belonging to a mother of three have been stolen by a person or a group on five previous occasions, and not a single cow has been found yet.

Lamenting on the disappearance of the cows, dairy farmer G.A. Wasantha Kumari said she is a single mother of three children, and that she makes a living by selling cow’s milk.

“I have complained to the Buttala Police many times about this. The cattle stolen are worth Rs.100,000. I just want them back,” she said.

“This is the only way I know to make a living and feed my children.

“All I ask is for the law to be enforced against those who do such a heinous acts,” Kumari added.
