The dead body of an eight-year-old boy strangled to death has been found from a canal at Pathkolagolla in Galewela.

He had gone missing from the home of a relative from his father’s side.

A search by the relatives and the area residents resulted in the body being found in a canal nearby.

Taken to Galewela Hospital, the boy was pronounced dead by doctors.

The house where he had stayed had been used as a venue for various ceremonial events.
