A body of a 16-year-old boy was discovered in a teak forest in the Kolobage area in Miriswelpana, Udawalawe on the morning of Monday, June 15.

The student had reportedly left his house for a tuition class last evening. The body of the victim which had laceration marks, was identified to be Hasitha Neranjana, a Grade 11 student of Kolombage Maha Vidyalaya.

The father of Hasitha, who is the only brother to two sisters, filed a police complaint as his son did not return home last night.

The uncle of Hasitha stated that he had left home at around 3:45 p.m. and did not return home after classes. He added that someone had told them that they saw traces of blood on the road at 3 a.m. Monday morning.

The tuition class that Hasitha was to attend is located in the Miriwelpena Junction. However, the victim’s body was found in an area in a direction opposite to the tuition class. While the distance from the Miriswelpena Junction to Hasitha’s residence is around 300 metres, his body was found nearly a kilometre away, passing his house along the Miriswelpena Road.

According to our correspondent, the blood stains were found around 500 metres in to a by-road on the left side of the main road. He added that the traces of blood stretched on for about 30 metres on the road.

The body was discovered on the left side of this by-road in a teak forest, where the trail of blood ended. In addition, our correspondent stated that traces of blood were found once again around 100 metres away from where the body was found with a file cover.

Investigations were launched with the use of the Police Canine Unit, and a post-mortem examination is scheduled to take place.
