A rape victim rescued from well
A girl who was alleged to have been raped and pushed into a well and left to die at Mirigama had been rescued this morning, Police said.
They said the girl had attended a musical show last evening when she was allegedly dragged into a jungle, raped and then pushed into a well so that she would drown.
Police said two students were arrested on suspicion of having been involved in this crime.
They said the girl had remained in the well for more than eight hours and had managed to survive because the 12-foot deep well had only two feet of water.
