President Maithripala Sirisena, who visited Jaffna today, assured justice over the murder of Sivaloganathan Vithya, the teenager who was found raped and murdered recently.
While speaking to students at Vembadi Girl’s High School in Jaffna, the President was asked by students about the rape and murder of the girl.
The President told the students that he will appoint a Special Court to look into the case and ensure justice is served.
Sirisena also condemned the incident over which a group of men have already been arrested.
Vithya was abducted and was believed to have been gang-raped before she was killed.
The incident has sparked an outrage in Jaffna with violent protests being held by students and the public who are demanding justice. (Colombo Gazette)
