Central Provincial Councillor Anuradha Jayaratne and three others surrendered to the police today in connection with a shooting incident when the election office of President Mahithripala Sirisena was attacked during the election campaign.  


The Gampola Magistrate had earlier banned Mr. Jayaratne from leaving the country in this connection.

The four arrested were released on Rs.50,000 cash bail and Rs. 200,000 surety bail by Gampola Magistrate Upul Jayawickrama.

    Whether PM son or any top official son / daughter to brought to justice since earlier law was applied only on poor men of the country. All BIGs escaped.

    Yes, law should be equal to everybody. That is why people voted for Maithree.
