The body of a boy reported missing several days ago from Gonaganara in Buttala, was found on Wednesday. The body of eight-year-old, Supun Pushpakumara, was found floating on the Menik River in the Demodaramulla area.

The boy was reported missing since October 17 and a search was launched following a complaint filed by the child’s parents.

The boy’s mother stated:

My son accompanied me to to the paddy-field on Saturday and he refused to come back with me. He said he will come back with the father and when I, took lunch to the paddy field he was there, and my husband says that he returned. But when I came to the road he was nowhere. He had simply disappeared

The victim’s father stated:

When I was working with the tractor, my son did not go with his mother. He was around the area. So, I asked him to go with his mother, he still did not go.  When I was fixing my tractor he was standing by a coconut tree. When I left my tractor and came back, he was not there.

The magisterial inquiry into the remains of Supun Pushpakumara were conducted on Wednesday. Further investigations are currently underway.
