SL navy sailor sexually assaults 4-year-old Tamil child in Trincomalee

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 31 December 2013, 15:25 GMT]
A sailor of the occupying Sinhala Navy from a camp in Thiriyaay, a Tamil village in the north of Trincomalee district, was arrested on Sunday by the Kuchchave'li Police as the villagers demanded immediate action from the commanders of the occupying military and police in Thiriyaay. The SLN sailor, identified as one Priyantha Dissanayake, was produced in Trincomalee magistrate court on Monday before the acting magistrate who ordered the suspect to be remanded till January 6, 2014.

The suspected sailor from the Kuchchave'li Navy camp had been deployed to visit the village to supply drinking water to the resettled people.

He used to visit the house of the victim girl, the parents of the victim said.

On Sunday, the SLN sailor visiting the house for water supply, asked the elder sister to get some curry leaves from the nearby jungle. The parents had gone for cultivation at that time.

The victim child was taken away by the suspect to a lonely spot where he abused her.

When the sister returned, she found the Sinhala sailor abusing her sister and shouted alerting the fellow Tamil villagers, who chased the soldier. The commander of the SL Navy refused to take any action and told the villagers to go and complain to the SL police.

The abused child is now admitted at the Trincomalee General Hospital.

The elder sister of the girl was also sexually abused by ‘unidentified’ persons 6 months ago, news sources in Thiriyaay said.
