A 20-year-old young woman who was employed in Avissawella industrial zone was hacked to death by her 25-year-old boyfriend.
The incident took place yesterday. However, their love story started in grade 07.
An eye witness of the incident said, “The youth stayed till she came. He said that he wanted to speak with her. Then he showed her a recording. Even though he said that she did a mistake she did not agree. Later when he tried to attack her she ran. She fell and he stabbed her with a knife.”
The man, an ex-soldier, attempted to escape but was caught by residents in the area and handed him over to the police.
