Two children abandoned
A father yesterday abandoned his two daughters, aged five and eight years, near the Homagama police station claiming he no longer could look after them as his wife had left.

The man, a minor employee at the Colombo Eye Hospital, had been taking his two children to work with him for ten days since the mother had left them.

Unable to continue with the practice of taking the children with him to work, he had handed the school admission application of the youngest child to her hand and the cell phone number of their mother, to the elder girl before leaving them.

The family had been living in the Pitipana area of Homagama.

Headquarters Inspector of the Homagama police, Sanjaya Leelaratne, while ensuring the children were looked after in the interim, was trying to bring back the mother and the father to reunite the family.
