Four bodies were discovered from inside a three-storeyed house in Kawdana Road in Dehiwala on Wednesday, March 16.

The deceased were the mother, father and daughter of the same family and a relative.

According to our correspondent the house which was located next to 40/B on Kawdana Road in Dehiwela was home to a family of three, the daughter being thirteen years of age.

The deceased father, Hussain Mowlana and mother Marshida Mowlana, were aged 65 and 52 years at the time of their demise. Their daughter was thirteen-year-old Husna Mowlana,  while fourteen-year-old Mishna Moulana was a relative.

The office of the Police Media Spokesperson noted that they suspect the deaths to be the result of electrocution as the bodies were found on the ground floor.
