The parents who found the six-year old girl unconscious in need of medical attention was pronounced death upon her admission to the Badalkumbura Base hospital, last night.
The police suspect, the 13-year old sister, fatally stabbed the six-year-old, her half sister, with a kitchen knife or a sharp objective because of a dispute between them.
