Cobra girl: Court turns down police request

8 April 2013 07:08 am - 28     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The Colombo Fort Magistrate today turned down a police request to direct the Controller of Immigration and Emigration to arrest Nirosha Wimalaratne also known as ‘the cobra girl’ when she returns to the country.

Magistrate Gihan Pilapitiya had on April 4, issued a warrant for Ms. Wimalaratne’s arrest for not being present in Court to answer charges in the case where she is alleged to have had a cobra in her room at a Kollupitiya nightclub.

The Kollupitiya police informed Court that the suspect had violated Court orders by leaving the country and that they were unable to locate her permanent address.
They said there was nothing known about her sureties either and as such asked Court to direct the Controller of the Immigration and Emigration to arrest her on arrival at the airport.

The Magistrate said he would only allow a copy of the warrant to be submitted to the Airport Police OIC for the police to arrest the suspect at the airport. (Lakmal Sooriyagoda)

    The Police is running after a poor girl for a trivial offence. Why don't the AG intervenes and drops this case as he has done in cases like Fashion Bug attack, Malaka Siva, Duminda Silva (rape case), etc..

    AG, exercise your conscience and stop this official vendetta.

    If a murder suspect goes overseas with state security, what is this.

    What a gutted woman. She must have some political influences, that is why she does not care the existing legal system.

    but why they focus on silly things like this... Police should concentrate on more important crimes ane....

    Lithasa Monday, 08 April 2013 08:38 AM

    In an unlawful country where the gun culture is increasing day by day, murders, rape cases go unnoticed, politicians and their sons play havoc, is this considered as an illegal act????

    Calistus Jayatilleke Monday, 08 April 2013 08:56 AM

    Cant understand why the Police and courts are wasting their valuable time on a silly issue like this, when there are major crimes taking place in the country.
