Three suspects were arrested in connection to the rape and murder of a student in the Aalad area in Jaffna. The suspects in question were presented before courts today by the Kytes police and were placed under remand custody until the 28th of this month.

The victim’s parents filed a complaint with the Kytes police station on Wednesday when their child did not return home from school. However, putting a full-stop to the search, the body of the victim was discovered with her hands and legs bound in the Punguduthiwu area, yesterday.

A demonstration was staged in Kilinochchi by students calling on authorities to bring the perpetrators to book immediately. Students from the Kilinochchi Central College, Kilinochchi College as well as students and lecturers from the Jaffna University took part in this demonstration.

A petition was subsequently handed over to the Kilinochchci district secretary demanding that the perpetrators be punished.
