Orphanage warden’s husband remanded over sexual abuse charges


A 60-year-old has been remanded until 08 March after being arrested on charges of molesting a group of girls at an orphanage in Rakwana, Ratnapura.

The arrestee, who was remanded on orders of the Ralmadulla Magistrate’s Court, has been identified as the husband of a warden at the orphanage, currently employed at a petrol shed in the area.

He was arrested on 24 February by the Ratnapura Police, following a tip-off they had received from the Divisional Secretariat of the Godakawela area, while the warden’s employment at the orphanage was also terminated following this incident.
