The National Child Protection Authority has arrested the driver of a  three-wheeler and a woman who reportedly used an underage girl for prostitution. The authority said the sixteen-year-old girl had had an affair with the twenty-three-year-old driver.

The male suspect is reported to have taken lewd pictures of the girl, which he had subsequently used to frighten her into engaging in prostitution. The arrested woman, who also faces charges for using the sixteen-year-old for prostitution, is a thirty-five-year-old resident of Mount Lavinia.

The suspects were arrested based on a complaint made to the Child Protection Authority  by the father of the child.
