Vavuniya schoolgirl death was murder not suicide Featured

A 13-year-old schoolgirl said to have committed suicide in Vavuniya two years ago is now found to have been strangled to death, according to ‘Divaina’.

Teachers of the school S. Harshani of Ukkulankulam attended, Vipulananda Vidyalaya, doubted claims that there was evidence that she hung herself, and complained to authorities.
