Around 20 - 30 teenage girls are raped in Matara each day, Matara deputy mayor Ranjith Rasarathne says.
He had said thus while speaking at a meeting of a recent Matara Municipal Council.
Today there are boards displayed in the Matara town saying that lodging is available for Rs. 400. Around 20 -30 girls aged around 13- 16 years are being raped in these places each day.
Noting that such places bring the city to disrepute, he urged to launch an immediate probe on such places and close them down
