Following the incident of a luxury vehicle crashing into a motor showroom opposite the Nelum Pokuna Theatre in Colombo on Sunday, Cinnamon Gardens Police have released the suspect, who is a daughter of a Senior Superintendent of Police, on police bail of Rs.10,000 today.

The suspect was charged with negligent driving, failing to avoid an accident as well as driving without a valid licence. The suspect, who was released on bail, will be produced before the Colombo Chief Magistrate tomorrow(17), police said.

The 19-year-old suspect, Ratnayaka Mudiyanselage Reshani Maleesha Ratnayaka, is a resident of Pothuarawa, Thalangama, Malabe.

A complaint was lodged with the Cinnamon Gardens Police by L. A. Anura, proprietor of Nanda Motors, in Colombo 7. The incident caused heavy property damage to the showroom, including damage to several luxury vehicles, the complainant said.

Police also said the suspect had been driving a vehicle belonging to another person, who had also been charged against his actions to allow a person without a licence to drive his vehicle.

Meanwhile, a senior Police officer said that the SSP's son was arrested in 2019, in connection with an accident involving a Jeep, which killed the then Borella Traffic OIC IP Ananda Sarathchandra.(Nimanthi Ranasinghe)

    What a dreadful family.

    Sambo Tuesday, 17 November 2020 08:49 AM

    Politicians and the rich have nothing to worry of law and order in Sri Lanka. They can do what ever they want with impunity and go scotch free. it's all for the poor man only.

    Citizen Tuesday, 17 November 2020 08:50 AM

    These kind of law enforcement officers should be terminated as they are a disgrace for the law. To protect family members twice for crimes including murder is disgusting. But then, this is where Sri Lanka is headed to now. There is no law and order.

    Yehiya Tuesday, 17 November 2020 10:13 AM

    Civilized police officers. Shani at the cell for good job. Shame.

    Not to worry, rich

    Common Man Tuesday, 17 November 2020 10:24 AM

    Driving without a valid license and released on police bail! How come?

    joshua Tuesday, 17 November 2020 10:32 AM

    how come a person without a license be released on bail? Is it such a small offense? I assume that they will cover up the whole case.

    Sammy Tuesday, 17 November 2020 10:46 AM

    Some of these Police big shots children think they can get away with anything.

    cineha Tuesday, 17 November 2020 01:23 PM

    who is the owner of that V8 SUV bearing registration no: CAB 2688? That will make some interesting reading.

    Lanka putha Tuesday, 17 November 2020 09:16 PM

    Big daddy Tuesday, 17 November 2020 10:41 PM

    FF Tuesday, 17 November 2020 10:58 PM
