Four Sinhalese men who were riding in a van, lured a Tamil laundry-woman into their vehicle promising to give her a lift home and sexually abused her in a nearby jungle on Tuesday. A woman herding cows found the 45-year-old victim at unconscious state in the jungle near Ma’ndoor Black Bridge and admitted the victim at Ka’luvaagnchik-kudi hospital.
The victim was later transferred to Batticaloa Teaching Hospital.
A complaint has been lodged with the SL police at Vellaave’li.
In the meantime, SL police officials said they had arrested four workers on suspicion but declined to provide further details.
The victim has stated in her complaint that she could identify the four culprits.
