14 year-old girl gang raped in Tissamaharama

“I’m dying…

If I had done wrong to my family, relatives or friends, I’m sorry.

I love my friends and family.”

Above is the final letter written by a 14-year-old girl, to her parents, friends, and family.

This young girl took her own life after she was gang-raped by three young men -one of them was her boyfriend.

The three men who raped her, may not have put the rope around her neck…

But are they guilty of murder?
