Police to arrest six friends of Malaka

2 November 2014 01:11 pm - 45     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The Colombo Crimes Division of the Police had begun an investigation over the incident during which the son of Minister Mervyn Silva and gang of six had allegedly assaulted foreign couple at a nightclub in Colombo on Saturday.


Police Spokesman SSP Ajith Rohana said that the CCD was looking into the incident with a view of arresting the six accomplices of Malaka Silva.


SSP Rohana said that Malaka Silva who was ordered to be held in remand custody over alleged assaulting, would be produced before Colombo Magistrate’s Court for an identification parade on Tuesday (4).


Malaka Silva had been admitted to a private hospital himself following the brawl at a night club in Kollupitiya on early Saturday (01) morning.  


The British national had lodged a police complaint in this regard, while a companion of Malaka had also lodged a complaint with the Police stating that his friend had been assaulted by the British national at the nightclub at R.A. De Mel Mawatha in Kollupitiya.


 “Mr. Silva was to be sent to prison from the hospital, where he was staying today,” the SSP Rohana said.


The CCD which conducted investigations into the incident said that the British couple had been assaulted by Malaka and his companions at the nightclub.


The 24-year-old British woman who arrived in the country on October 29 had participated in her Scottish boyfriend’s (43) birthday party held at the nightclub on that day,” SSP Rohana said.


He said that Malaka Silva was also injured during the brawl. The British couple, who sustained injuries to their head and face, would be produced before a Judicial Medical Officer (JMO).


He said that the Police had already recorded statements from the manager and other employees of the nightclub and also inspected the CCTV camera footage obtained from the nightclub. (Darshana Sanjeewa)

    how many assaults have there been? I cant even keep count.. remember the lawyer who was pistol whipped (forgotten in true sri Lankan banana republic fashion).. tomorrows headlines... British couple attacker revealed as Chris Nonis and that Malaka was only trying to help the couple... what we hear of our just a few of the assaults any night club goer will tell you otherwise.

    Mervin is not involved in this incident. So why should he be penalised.And is the president responsible for any thug behaving badly.

    pradeep Monday, 03 November 2014 04:46 PM

    Not 6 friends of Malaka, 6 dirty thugs.

    peter Monday, 03 November 2014 05:12 PM

    Dont think in UK the law and order is 100% correctly delivered.If you are a colored person then when you call police for burglary or make a complain at a police station they treat you as a second class person.There are many many cases where justice had been delivered in very poor ways.If you reside there for a long time then you realise it but if you go for a holiday then you will think that everything is 100% ok!

    Haramnis Monday, 03 November 2014 05:54 PM

    Well done Nalaka. You have proved that you are the most qualified to be the Education Minister. God bless SL.

    Rohana, dont BS us. Tell us when you actually remand the thug Malaka and arrests his six friends. Very easy to say "will be arrested"! Heard that before.

    Nodrog Monday, 03 November 2014 08:42 PM

    Not necessary. They will be included in the next candidates list.

    Sylvia Haik Monday, 03 November 2014 08:56 PM

    If not for the CCTV evidence, the Scottish couple would have been charged with assault and possibly deported.

    Dutugemunu Monday, 03 November 2014 10:25 AM

    The British High Commission is asking for justice. I suppose the involvement of BHC is the only way justice could be ensured in SL. We saw this at the murder by Tangalle PS Chairman
