Abduction: Police seek AG’s advice on Hirunika

29 December 2015 07:32 am - 15     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Police Spokesman Ruwan Gunasekara said today the Attorney General’s advice would be sought on the action to be taken in connection with UNP MP Hirunika Premachandra’s involvement in the incident where a man was said to have been abducted and assaulted by some of her supporters.

He said they would send the extracts of the investigation report on this matter.

The man, who was abducted in his complaint to the police, said he was forcibly taken away in a Defender vehicle belonging to Ms. Premachandra.

ASP Gunasekara said the police have also obtained a Court order directing mobile phone service providers to handover the records of the suspects’ telephone conversations to check whether they were in contact with Ms. Premachandra during the time of the alleged abduction. (Darshana Sanjeewa)

    Done intentionally or not Hirunika has made the biggest blunder of her political carrier and should resign without embarrassing the govt.

    To begin with this should have never happened.She now the principals of the YAHAPALANA government.We ousted MR to have a government with good governance.She cannot take the law in to her hands and what I cannot understand why the police need advice from AG.In her press conference she admitted that she knew what was happening.Rather than wasting time take her in to custody so that such incidence will not happen in future.I am surprised why the PM has not spoken about this matter.

    Did the police ask AG before they beat on the head of female student? Before politicians they are like dogs, tale between the legs.

    Under yahapaalanaya law is equal to every citizen of the country. The penal code of the country has all the provisions for such misconduct. Act according to the law. No one is above the law.

    Why all these procedures for her? If we were even suspected of sniffing around a scene like that we would have been remanded and tortured. We voted for the YP expecting these double standards to go away.

    Before this abduction there were thousands of similar incidents under MR govt. First investigate these.
