Colombo - A suspect identified as Ruvan Chaminda Kumara, a resident of Thambagallawatta in Panirendawa, Madampe, has been remanded for raping his underage daughter born to his paramour, ‘Mawbima’ reported.

The suspect, who had been remanded for a murder while working as a watcher at a coconut estate in Kotadeniyawa, returned after 14 years from prison and started an affair with a woman living at Thambagallawatta.

During his paramour’s admission to the hospital for the confinement of her second child, the suspect raped the elder daughter born to her on several occasions.

On October 3, when she complained of spinal pain, the doctors at the Chilaw District Hospital, after examining her confirmed that girl was pregnant.

Although the suspect’s paramour had known that her husband had raped their elder daughter, she had not attempted to question him about it or make a complaint.

Madampe police are conducting investigations.
