Police inquiry after complain over woman’s claim of finding son lost during 2004 tsunami
Sri Lanka Police has launched an inquiry over the news of a mother finding her child 16 years after he went missing since the Tsunami catastrophe.
Police says that they have received a complaint from a woman, who has now come forward stating that she is the real mother of the child who went missing.
N. Inshan, the person who made the latest claim with regard to the boy, says that she has documentary proof to ensure that the young boy is her son.
Few days ago, a woman named Abusali Sithi said that her 5-year-old son who went missing, was found after 16 years.
She told reporters at her residence that she never stopped looking for her son after he went missing and she was later told that he was seen at a local hospital.
Eventually in 2016 she received information about her son being seen at a school and attempted to visit him to confirm his identity.
However, she says the school authorities had refused to allow her to meet him.
She had later established contact with him by promising him an employment opportunity, and later revealed to him of some unique marks on his body.
The boy also told reporters at that time that he is convinced the woman is his mother and is happy to be reunited after 16 years.
However now the woman who raised this boy has filed a complaint with the Samanthurai Police insisting that the boy is her son.
The boy speaking to reporters yesterday said that he is confused and requested authorities to help him to find his real mother.
Police is expected to conduct a DNA test to find the real mother of the 21 year old.
