The Moragalla tourist police OIC who had been remanded for the alleged rape of a woman, was released on bail by the Kalutara Chief Magistrate Kanishka Wijeratne.
The suspect was arrested by the Aluthgama police on December 22 and remanded following a complaint by a 28 year old mother of two that she was raped by him in a bedroom of the police station.
The suspect was produced before the Magistrate the following day by Prison Officers to consider his bail application. The Magistrate released the suspect on bail on the condition that he would be re-remanded if he interfered with the evidence.
Attorneys Bandula Weerasinghe and Siri Perera appeared for the suspect. (Sunil Thanthriarachchi)
