A two-and-a-half-year-old boy and a 10-year-old girl have been admitted to the Karapitiya Hospital after being injured by a “Hakkapatas” that exploded when they were playing with it, thinking it was a ball.

Wanduramba Police said that the ball-shaped hakkapatas found in their backyard at Dalukgala  Kande area in Pitiharawa, Wanduramba, exploded while they were playing with it after taking it inside their house.

Investigations have revealed that a person living in a nearby house was making hakkapatas to hunt animals.

Police inspected the house and found a barrel of refuse arrack, wires, and hakkapatas used to hunt animals. 

The owner of the house has been arrested and is scheduled to be produced before the Baddegama Magistrate's Court today.
