Colombo High Court today served indictments on Parliamentarian Hirunika Premachandra and eight others over the alleged abduction of a youth in Dematagoda area late last year.

Subsequently, the accused were released on cash bail of Rs. 50,000 with two sureties of Rs. 500,000 each.

Colombo High Court Judge Pathmini N. Ranawaka fixed the trial of the case for January 10 and 11, 2017.

The Judge also imposed a travel ban on the suspects and advised not to interfere with the witnesses and warned if so the bail would be annulled and suspects would be remanded till the end of the trial.

The Attorney General had filed indictments on 29 counts against the suspects.

Earlier, the suspects were produced in Colombo Chief Magistrate's Court at the non-summary trial and now on bail over the incident.

The victim, Amila Priyanga was alleged to have abducted by the suspects.

The incident was captured on CCTV cameras, which were later used by the Police to arrest the suspects.(Shehan Chamika Silva)

    If proven guilty let's hope they serve the full sentence without political influence. This will give the common man confidence and trust in our judicial system once more.
