Sri Lankan police have commenced investigation into the death of a four year old Maldivian girl in Sri Lanka.

Maldives Police Service stated that the child passed away last week.

“We’re following this investigation into her death very closely,” said Superintendent of Police Ahmed Shifan.

Mihaaru understands that Sri Lankan police launched the probe due to certain suspicions surrounding the circumstances of her death. The nature of the suspicions remain unclear.

According to Mihaaru’s sources, the four year old girl’s parents are both Maldivians. She was living with her mother in Sri Lanka while her father is imprisoned in Male Prison.
