Two persons were injured including an independent candidate and gun shots were exchanged in Endaana in Kahawatta when a clash broke out between a UPFA team led by Deputy Minister of Power and Energy Premalal Jayasekara and a group led by an independent candidate contesting from Kahawatta for the upcoming local Government Elections.
The injured were admitted to the Ratnapura General Hospital. The UPFA team was decorating the area at the time of the incident. Two vehicles belonging to the Minister were also damaged in the incident.
Two complaints have been lodged at the Kahawatta police by the two parties and they have accused each other that the other group started to open fire and assault them, the police said. (Supun Dias and Lasanatha Niroshana Perera)
