[TamilNet, Thursday, 17 September 2009, 09:52 GMT]
A 14-year-old Tamil girl from a leading girl’s convent in Hatton was allegedly raped by a Sri Lankan policeman attached to the same area, and a court on Wednesday ordered the immediate arrest of the suspect, who has been transferred to the north barely a day after the incident is alleged to have taken place. Meanwhile, another under-age girl in the same division was abducted by three businessmen who forced her to perform sexual acts and filmed her inside a privately-owned studio.

The girl student is a resident from Bohgawantahalawa and was boarded at the convent in Hatton which is situated in close proximity to the Hatton police station.

A medical examination at the local hospital in Nawalapitiya confirmed that the minor had been sexually abused and ordered the police to take the necessary follow up action.

According to police the suspect is alleged to have lured the victim, an Up-Country Tamil, to a lonely spot in a tea estate and thereafter allegedly molested her.

Meanwhile in a separate case on August 22 another 15-year-old Tamil girl from an estate in the Hatton division was taken away by two auto rickshaw drivers and forced to perform sexual acts that were filmed inside a privately-owned studio.

The owner of the studio was arrested and remanded till October 20. The remaining two suspects are evading arrest.
