In a case of serial paedophilia, Divulapitiya Police has arrested the acting principal of a primary school in the area for molesting 11 underage children.
Police said the suspect had molested 10 girls and one boy between the ages of five and 10 years, who are students at the primary school.
The suspect was arrested on Thursday (28) after the Divulapitiya Police received information from the National Child Protection Authority (NCPA) of the said school principal being involved in molesting students.
The suspect was produced before the Minuwangoda Magistrate yesterday and then he was ordered to be remanded till 7 July.
The Magistrate also ordered police to hand over the children, who had been victimized by the paedophile to their parents.

An officer attached to Divulapitiya Police told Ceylon Today that they believe there are more students, who would have been victimized but are not coming forward. Divulapitiya Police is currently conducting further investigations.
