    Lanka Shantha Sunday, 05 August 2012 12:59 AM

    This is very very small matter. Why news media blow it as a big one?

    perumal Sunday, 05 August 2012 03:43 AM

    No, this man was not so close to the interests of the Family like Amare, Katriarachchi, Ashanta de Mel, Pradeep Kariyawasam etc, etc.

    rohan Sunday, 05 August 2012 03:48 AM

    a dangerous trend, criminals in politics.

    Jagath Leanage Sunday, 05 August 2012 03:46 AM

    Very soon, Maha Raja will appoint a commitee or commission,matter closed. Similar to Mannar incident, hedging, rape cases, child mollestering, Z score issue, etc.

    Chandler Sunday, 05 August 2012 04:05 AM

    Lanka Shatha - You recon this is a small matter! You are sadly mistaken. Particularly, those who make the legislation (Politicos) should lead by example, Assaulting anyone is a serious crime. Do you wish to be assaulted? wake up to reality man!
