The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) says that the police investigation into the death of a minor girl who worked at the house of MP Rishad Bathiudeen has been too slow a process. Its former Member of Parliament Dr. Nalinda Jayatissa stated that justice should be done to the deceased girl who is under investigation. "She has been employed as a servant in the house of former minister Rishard Bathiudeen for about a year. In her post-mortem report, medical officers confirm that she was raped and that the police investigation into her death is still in full swing even after she committed suicide. Have those involved been arrested? At least in the case of Rishad Bathiudeen's family, those who have enslaved the girl have inquired about her previous employment? We do not see anything happening fast. We do not see justice being done to the dead girl. ” However, two police teams recorded statements from several parties regarding the incident last night (20), said Police Media Spokesman Senior DIG Ajith Rohana. Meanwhile, the police spokesman said that four statements were recorded from the Kiriwandala area in Puwakpitiya, Avissawella where the girl who died yesterday was said to be studying. The police spokesman said that the principal and the deputy principal of the school where the girl went to school were among them and that a statement would be recorded from the mother once again. Ven. Pahiyangala Ananda Sagara Thero said that the Children and Women's Bureau should immediately intervene to take immediate action regarding the continued harassment of minors. Prof. Muditha Vidanapathirana, Chairman of the Children and Women's Bureau, says that he expects the support of the people for the Bureau's program to protect children.
