Colombo - Sri Lanka Police captured a famous Buddhist monk in the country. The 60-year-old man accused of having sex with a girl aged 12 years.
Worse yet, it's immoral acts going on for about a year at the temple monks in Anuradhapura district. This was conveyed by Sri Lankan police as reported by AFP news agency on Saturday (20/08/2011).
No mention is the identity of the elderly monk. Sri Lanka Police also declined to provide further details about the arrests.
