Attempted child rape foiled
A Sri Lanka Army (SLA) solider attached to the 555 division, attempted to rape a young girl who was walking down a road in the Elathumaduvaal area of Jaffna.
‘We heard a girl screaming at the top of her voice and immediately rushed to the site,’ said a local resident. ‘This is not the first time such an incident has occurred. We are always on alert. Only by acting together we can save our people from the occupying monsters,’ she added.
Hearing the screams of the young girl, residents rushed to the site and thwarted the attempted rape. The solider is said to have fled into a SLA army camp nearby.
The incident has been reported to Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission and Jaffna based Human Rights organisations.
