The main suspect over the homicide of Seya Sadewmi from Kotadeniyawa was remanded until October 5. The order was issued when the suspect was produced before the Chief Magistrate of Minuwangoda, D.A.Ruwan Pathirana.
Police, at a media conference that was held in Colombo on Saturday, stated that the DNA report with regard to the case will be available by September 28 and the report will be produced in courts.
Police added that the parents have to pay a pivotal role to prevent the repetition of such incidents.When taking a closer look at crimes against children it has been observed that the criminals are quick to prey on their victims, once the victim leaves the protection of the parents.
Therefore, what is the responsibility of parents?
Veteran Actress Irangani Serasinghe says “… we need to identify the reasons for this. Some would say that the mothers need to pay special attention towards their children. That is true. If both the mother and father are employed the child is often left in the custody of the grandparent. Or they will leave the child with a guardian. Despite closing the door, the parents might not close a window. That gives an opportunity for a criminal to enter the house. Mothers needs to understand that the issue will not be resolved simply because the child is with the grandmother. This is a sad situation …”
Journalist Omaya Kovilagodage says that as a journalist reporting on crimes against children, she has observed that once the child leaves the protection of the parents, the child becomes a victim to the murderer or the criminal and the child will become a prey to the criminal.
She also notes that parents need to pay closer attention towards their responsibilities and need to think more about children.
