Hirunika Premachandra, the daughter of the slain Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra said that the whole country is watching the proceedings of the case and if justice is not delivered the countrymen would rise up against it.
Showing pictures taken at the scene of the crime, which showed the former MP lying in a pool of blood minutes after the shootout to the media present at courts, Hirunika urged authorities to act equitably.
“Its not only the people present here today, but the whole country is watching the events unfold in this case and all of us demand justice. If justice is not delivered people will rise against this,” she said.
She also asked the CID to be humane in handling the affair and consider the plight that the family is undergoing, “its been six months since my father was killed and the CID doesn’t seem to be interested in giving justice. They have continuously delayed the case against our interest. I urge them to be humane and think if they would act the same way if one of their family members were murdered in this manner,” she said.
