On the 28th April on the orders of Deniyaya Police, Horagalagamage Sumith Chandrakumara, Kotapola in Matara Distric, reports to Deniyaya Police Station with his two sons, Indranieda and Janka Pradeep Kumara.
At the Criminal Investigation Section, Janaka Pradeep Kumara was taken inside along with Ananda, a resident of the Area. After about ten minutes thery were broght back. Then one Officer told Ananda , pointing at Janka Pradeep,”this fellow has not taken you M.phone. It is your responsibility to safeguard your telephone in the midst of a crowd. It is your carelessness. And we cannot do anything” That moment S.I Wimalkeerthie had walked in and had taken Janaka Pradeep inside saying “Are You the Man?’ and had started assaulting him.
When Mrs Indrani ,Janaka Pradeep’s mother went inside S.I.Wimalakeerthi ,while assaulting Janka Pradeep had told Mrs.Indrani”Before I break his bones and produce him at the Courts tomorrow you had better pay the value of the phone and take him away.” Against Pradeep’s protests Mrs. Indrani decided to pay Rs.6000/- to prevent Janaka Pradeep getting tortured and to avoid producing him at the Courts as he is still a school boy..She paid the money when asked for a receipt ,she was threatened.
Janaka was angry with his mother saying that by paying that money she had made him a culprit for a crime he is not aware of. Immediately after that he had tried to commit suicide, by swallowing (16) sixteen Pandols and had tried to jump from the top of a building ,luckily some people had seen it and had saved him.
Janaka Pradeep was warded at Karapitiya Hospital for five days. He is a worried person and is mentally sick.
Torture is a grave crime. Torturing a school boy is worse.
