One person was killed and two others were injured when a brawl took place in the Bulathkohupitiya area in Kegalle between two groups in the early hours today.  

The victim who was stabbed with swords succumbed to his injuries at the Kegalle Hospital. A complaint has been lodged with the Kegalle police but no suspects have been arrested so far.

Peoples Action for Free and Fair Elections (PAFFREL) Executive Director, Rohana Hettiarachchi said a short while ago that reports suggest that the incident was between two UPFA supporters.

However  Police have denied that the incident was related to the today Local Government Elections. (SD and OJ)

    It's a joke. Have you ever heard of Police admitting any of the incidents published or relayed in media. They always deny.

    Why is the Police not going after the culprits? Or is it maybe they have been threatened to keep away from this incident.

    Just for 10% - but 10% of 400 million US dollar is equivalnet to USD 40 millions which in turn equivalent to 4 Billion Sri Lankan Rupees

    It is not the type of leadership, it is the type of crasse population found in this country now. Thus the leaders elected are also of the same grade.
