The Colombo Crimes Division (CCD) yesterday sought public assistance over whereabouts of Ven. Arambepola Rathanasara Thera and a former Police Constable, who are wanted for investigations into the Mount Lavinia incident, where a group of Myanmar refugees were allegedly harassed by a group of protesters on September 26.

Police said both the Thera and the Constable were avoiding the CCD after they were summoned to record statements over the incident.

Police Constable Prageeth Chanaka Gunathilaka, a resident of Wadduwa was suspended from service after he was charged for damaging properties and threatening a principal of a girls' school in Panadura.

Police said the Constable has three ongoing court cases in the Panadura Magistrate's Court.

Police have requested if anyone has any information about Rathanasara Thera and the Constable to contact, Director CCD via telephone No. 0718591727.

The CCD arrested Ven. Akmeemana Dayarathana Thera and another person on Monday while six others including a woman were also arrested last week in connection with the Mount Lavinia incident. They were remanded till October 9 by the Mount Lavinia Magistrate's Court. (Darshana Sanjeewa)

    I THOUGHT ALL THE THEROS SHOULD BE IN TEMPLES.

    That's where they should be , but you see, but 3 full meals a day with other side accessories like fruit, milk etc, increases their calorie intake which should equally be spent. Hence this behavior.

    Perhaps on a boat to Tamil Nadhu, finally to escape the law that is their place.

    today's headline quotes Champika stating Buddhism was a peaceful religion, then why are so many monks wanted for crimes. Aren't these monks the guardian of Buddhism?

    Budhism is a peaceful Religion, but there are few in yellow robes surrounded by thugs aren't Budhists even if they call themselves Budhists

    Champika are fellows who make people believe that they are the greatest Buddhists but actually do not even know to define what is a Buddhist nor understand the basic principles. This is the life of their survival in Politics.

    Is too late to do this. After few days everything will be forgotten. The one in the jail will be released soon by the hidden support by president or PM

    On Looker Wednesday, 04 October 2017 11:02 AM

    Please check in temple trees or in President house

    Why avoid if not guilty? Monks should be confined to temples and preaching. They should spread the message of peace like the Buddha.

    Check in that temple in Japan. GANANASARA also hiding there.
