The maid who worked at the house of Sudharma Nethicumara has reportedly died under mysterious circumstances while in police custody.
Sudhrma Nethicumara, who is a character that created controversy in the country recently for her alleged behaviour, lives in the Royal Garden Premises down the Cooray Mawatha in Rajagiriya.
Last evening, Sudharma Nethicumara lodged a complaint with the Welikada police, saying that the maid who worked for her had stolen a number of gold items, including her ring.
The maid, Rajakumari, was a resident of Badulla Demodara Nawalawatte, and she was 42 years old.
At the time of filing this complaint, this woman was working as a maid in another house on Cotta Rd., Borella.
On the complaint of Sudharma Neththikumara, this woman, who was working in another house, was arrested and taken to the police station for questioning. The woman who fell ill while being interrogated by the police was rushed to the hospital and died within an hour of being admitted.
Informed police sources say that the Welikada Police are misleading the senior police officers while trying to hush up information regarding the incident.
