Mahara Magistrate Darshika Wimalasiri ordered the Kiribathgoda police to arrest the Chairman of the Kelaniya Pradeshiya Sabha Prasanna Ranaweera and produce him in court, in connection with the alleged assault on the businessman of the area and a supporter of Minister Mervyn Silva.

Police investigating the complaint of Kaduruketiya, Kelaniya resident Christie Roy Perera, submitted a report to court.

Meanwhile the Pradeshiya Sabha Chairman had made a complaint that Perera assaulted him. The magistrate who considered the police report ordered the arrest of Roy Perera as well.

Police told court that an altercation between the two parties, when Perera was erecting a cut-out at Roseville place in praise of a prominent minister’s wife, had resulted in the assault. (Ganidu Rochana Samaratunga)
