A Sri Lankan seeking employment in Malaysia has been killed.

The individual was a twenty-six-year-old resident of the Galewela area in Matale.

The boy’s father told News1st that after months of not receiving any information about his son, he had approached the Ministry of Foreign affairs. He stated that it was only then that he learnt of his son’s death.

He added that  although the Ministry of Foreign Affairs had details relevant to the incident the fact that they had not informed him was a serious issue. News1st inquired the Foreign Employment Services Bureau in this regard.
