The post-mortem was conducted today morning at the Panadura hospital on the body of the nine year old suspected suicide.
The post-mortem revealed the death was due to hanging by the neck. The boy was found hanging on the cashew tree at the backyard yesterday morning. The father had filed a complaint on Tuesday to the Anguruwathota police stating that he is suspicious of the child’s death.
Police media spokesman ASP Ruwan Gunasekara stated that the elder sister of the boy also has committed suicide by hanging herself four years ago.
