Feb 19, Colombo: The special police investigation team of Sri Lanka's National Child Protection Authority yesterday arrested the principal of Sir John Kotelawala College of Kurunegala Saman Indraratna for child abuse.

The principal was accused of cruelty against a female student of his school over a photo of the girl posted in Facebook that ultimately led to the depressed girl to commit suicide.

The principal was arrested yesterday afternoon for abusing the child mentally and verbally.

The student, Venusha Imandi Bandara hanged herself on February 05 after leaving a suicide note saying that she made her decision to end life because of harm caused by the Principal's severe scolding in front of a large assembly.

Fifteen persons have provided evidence to the special police unit of Child Protection Authority over the mental and verbal abuse and humiliation done by the principal against the child.

The police unit said that the principal had been arrested after thoroughly studying the evidence.

The principal is to be produced in court today.
