A tragic death of an 11-year-old girl was reported today after she was choked to death while playing alone a swing at her home in Aluth Nuwara in Mawanella.
Victim Dushani Pabodani, a year 5 student of Aluth Nuwara Primary School had refused to go to school today.
Later Pabodani’s mother sent her to stay with her great-grand mother next door before she went to get a jab for a younger child.
Around 11 in the morning, Pabodani had left alone for her parents’ house to bring down her clothing for a bath.
As Pabodani did not return for some time, her great grand mother went in search of the great grand daughter, and found Pabodani dead in the swing.
Apart from her twin sister, Pabodani had an elder brother and a younger sister.
