A 22-years old girl reportedly dashed her 18 days old cousin sister on the ground at the latter’s house of Siyambalagoda at Kahatuduwa today.
The Kahatuduwa police have already arrested the suspect.
The infant who was seriously injured was rushed to Wetara hospital and later transferred to Kalubovila Teaching hospital where the baby died of critical injuries.
