Police have begun investigations on a suspect accused of abducting a woman in a white van and raping her at a rest house in the Chilaw area.
The victim was a 31 year old mother of two from Bogahawetiya in Arachchikattuwa.
The victim, whose husband is employed abroad, had traveled to the Chilaw town on September 28 for a personal errand while a suspicious man had been following her and had forced her into a white van after which she had been taken to a rest house in the Bandarawatta area and raped.
She had only reported the incident to the police yesterday (October 3) while the victim has already identified the suspect.
No arrest has been made so far while the Chilaw police are conducting further investigations.
