A man of many parts:
Teacher, conman, lover and thief

By Chandradasa Kodituwakku- Matara Correspondent

Acting on a tip-off, the Matara police last Monday arrested a private tutor who had relieved several married women of their gold jewellery after inveigling them to come and watch pornographic films with him.

The police said that at the time of his arrest he had 27 CDs containing pornographic material.

His modus operandi was to befriend mothers of children to whom he gives tuition and he had easy access to the women as he always made it a point to go --and drop the children at their respective houses.

After befriending the women he invites them to watch pornographic films with him and subsequently takes them to hotels and guest houses and relieves them of their jewellery after making love to them, the police said.

In one instance, he had cheated a woman for hundreds of thousand rupees, an officer said.

Most of his victims were those employed overseas and who had returned home on leave.

The police arrested him after tracing the telephone numbers used by him.

The suspect would be produced before the Matara Magistrate following interrogation, the police said.
