A doctor who was alleged to have videoed under-aged girls for sexual purposes was arrested by the National Child Protection Authority (NCPA) Police, NCPA Chairman Anoma Dissanayake said.
It was reported that the doctor had videoed the victims, who were between the ages of 13-16, when they came to him for treatment. The police found a video tape in the suspect’s possession at the time of arrest.
The raid was carried out by the NCPA after they gathered valuable information after long surveillance of the suspect doctor, she said. However, it was alleged that he had sexually abused some of his other patients as well.
The doctor is from Hemathagama in Kegalle.
