Western Provincial Councillor (UPFA) Amal Pushpakumara Silva was arrested yesterday by the officials of the Mount Lavinia Division Crimes Prevention Unit for allegedly possessing live ammunition.

Police said the 50 year-old Councillor was arrested at his residence in Ratmalana following a tip off received from another suspect in the custody.

The Police had arrested a drug peddler, who was also a resident of Ratmalana last week with 32 grams of heroin during a raid in Ratmalana.

Police detained the suspect for 7-days after being produced in the Mount Lavinia Magistrate Court for further questioning and recovered a locally made firearm following the questioning.

The councillor was arrested based on the information given by the drug peddler.

He is to be produced in the Mount Lavinia Magistrate Court today. (Darshana Sanjeewa)
