Balapitiya Magistrate has remanded a 35-year-old man until the 7th of September for allegedly raping and abusing an 82-year-old unmarried elderly woman.

The victim, who was a resident of Thelwatte, Meetiyagoda South, had complained to the Meetiyagoda Police about the harrowing experience she had to undergo.

The magistrate has also called for a DNA report on the incident.

The suspect had entered the elderly woman's house through a window at around 7pm on that fateful day and had abused the woman throughout the night, the investigations revealed.

The suspect is a resident of Thelwatte.

However, two weeks after the incident, the elderly woman had passed away and police said a bladder infection was found to be the reason for her death.

The police said that the suspect has several other cases similar to this case, being heard in the Balapitiya courts.
