shutterstock_116263561An official at the National Child Protection Authority (NCPA) has been accused of abusing a young boy.

Minister of Women and Children’s Affairs Chandrani Bandara told the Colombo Gazette she has ordered a full investigation into the alleged incident.

A complaint over the abuse of the young boy from Kurunegala was made over the NCPA complaints hotline.

Sources said there was an attempt to suppress the complaint since it involved an official from the NCPA.

However Minister Chandrani Bandara insisted that she is closely following the investigations and that she had sought a report on the investigations today.

The Minister said she has called for an independent investigation and her instructions have been communicated to the NCPA through her secretary. (Colombo Gazette)
