In the identification parade conducted today at the Vavuniya Courts associated with the attempted rape last Sunday in Ganesapuram in Vavuniya district, two Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers were identified as the alleged offenders by the witnesses, legal sources in Vavuniya said.

Following the complaint, the Vavuniya police arrested four SLA suspects and produced them in Vavuniya courts. Vavuniya district court judge Ms. Srinithi Nanthasekaran ordered the suspects to be remanded and directed an identification parade to be held to identify the perpertrators of the crime.
