A police officer who issued a charge sheet to a Deputy Minister on the Southern Expressway on May 20 was reported to have been assaulted by a group of men at the 20 acre area in Bombuwala near the Dodangoda entry point last night while he was driving to work.

The police officer was attached to the Kottawa Expressway police unit and was on his way for duty in his car when the incident occurred.

Police said his car had been blocked by a group of men who arrived in a cab and assaulted him after dragging him out of the car. His car was also set on fire by them.

The police officer was admitted to the Nagoda Hospital.(Sunil Katriarachchi)

    Mr IGP, over to you. You couldn't arrest those who assaulted the UNP MP's; will you turn a blind eye to this one too?

    IGP is most respected officer in his service. politicians & politicized administration officers are playing the foul game. Police administration not under his administration.Good example is police spokesman.

    Our ministerial types. We elected them. We have got what we deserve. In UK a Chief Constable equivalent of DIG and Prince Charles too had been tickets for violation of traffic regulations. via DM iPad app

    Pathetic reporting by DM. Afraid to mention the name of deputy minister. Similarly a news item above says a 'leading school in Kollupitiya' but DM would not name the school. Freedom of expression and modern journalism has developed every where in the world but Sri Lankan journalists are still stuck in 19th centuary.

    Don't be surprised if the victim later denies that he was attacked, just like the army officer (not) attacked by a politico's son a few years ago.

    Good for the Police to learn lessons. After all they were overzelously serving the government politicians more than necessary.
    Let it be known that a Politician is only concerned about his pound of flesh and nothing else.
