The Colombo High Court on Tuesday, October 25,  imposed the death sentence on an accused who raped and killed a six year old girl who was said to be his niece.

The verdict was handed down on a 23-year-old youth in Kirulapone.

Indictments were filed against the accused for allegedly abducting the girl from her home while she was asleep, and raping her before disposing her body into the Kirulapone canal on June 20, 2013.

When the case was taken up before High Court judge, Kusala Weerawardena, she said that the accusations made have been proved beyond reasonable doubt.
