Eravur Police OIC Keerthi Jayantha praised a youngster who handed over a gold chain worth about Rs 250,000 which he found near Kaluvankerney beach in Batticaloa.

Jayantha yesterday (21) said the 16-year-old Rasadurai Dankaran has set an example for everyone and the society has so much to learn from him. The Eravur Police OIC said Dankaran, a resident of Mavadivembu in Batticaloa, requested the Police to find the owner and hand over the chain. Unfortunately, the youngster, who is the third child in the family, can’t continue his education due to poverty and his mother is serving as a housemaid in the Middle East, according to Jayantha. The Eravur Police are preparing to hand over the gold chain to the Circuit Magistrate's Court in Eravur on 27 October, OIC Jayantha added.
