The body of the schoolboy who had drowned after falling into a water-filled cave in Maskeliya has been retrieved.

The location is close to the Canyon hydropower plant.

Police said the boy had slipped and fallen into the cave and disappeared last evening (Mar. 20) while he was walking close to it with his father.

They were on their way to catch fish. The victim was aged 13 years.

This area is a high-security zone.

It was revealed that after the boy had fallen into the water, his father has also jumped to save him.

But he could not. Another group of persons had come and saved the father.

However, they could not find the boy.

Then police called in a team of Navy divers, who found the body.
