A dispenser of the Anuradhapura Prisons Hospital had allegedly attacked the leader of the Mahasohon Balakaya, Amith Weerasinghe, while at the Prisons Hospital.

Amith Weerasinghe was arrested and remanded in connection with riots in Digana, Kandy.
Prisons Spokesman T.N. Upuldeniya said that a dispenser of the Prison Hospital had allegedly attacked Amith Weerasinghe following an argument.

He said the dispenser was transferred to the Wariyapola Prisons following the incident.

“Disciplinary action would be taken against the official pending investigation,” he said.

The leader of the Mahasohon Balakaya was admitted to the Anuradhapura Hospital and undergoing treatment under Police and Prisons security.(Darshana Sanjeewa)

    What action against a person attacked mahasohona? He should be commended.

    The dispenser wanted to show he is not afraid of MAHASONA, the big devil.

    Good. The fellow deserves it. I was in a bus today when the bus conductor attacked elderly passenger physically for demanding his balance. The elderly passenger was helpless when a sturdily built young man gave the conductor a lovely beating until a fellow passenger intervened. There is no rule of law and now the people have taken it to their hands. Good!

    Should send him to the cemetery instead. Mahasonas belong there.

    We dont know if this is a drama, but what we are interested to know is when he will be back in prision. We dont want our tax money spent on this kind of good for nothing fellow.

    Arnold Sunday, 27 May 2018 04:38 PM

    A set up, may be?

    Raj Sunday, 27 May 2018 04:45 PM

    The suspect admitted to prisons hospital with a false reason and the dispenser has tried to make it a real reason!

    Siyabala Sunday, 27 May 2018 04:51 PM

    UNP governments have the blemish of attacking detainees in prisons in 83. The minister must take the responsibility. He's innocent until proven guilty . Sri Lankan prisons are hells on the soil.

    Journalist Sunday, 27 May 2018 05:30 PM

    Now the elite will visit him, which they avoided when he was at prisons. We need the list of VVIPs who visit him. I don’t understand why an officer needs to be transferred whilst dispensing his duty, any way this guy is not a saint and a perpetrator of the highest in mother Lanka.

    suresh Sunday, 27 May 2018 05:47 PM

    All part of the drama leader needs to be in hospital to plan further attacks

    Pasel Sunday, 27 May 2018 05:55 PM

    Nice set up “there is no safety for his life “want release ot bail

    xotikar Sunday, 27 May 2018 06:02 PM

    What was he doing in the PRISON HOSPITAL if he was in remand? It's all a hogwash at the end of the day. Altleast the dispenser had the guts to show that he was in the wrong place.

    C.K.Lankaputhra Sunday, 27 May 2018 06:03 PM

    Who is the real Mahasonaa? Leader or the Dispenser?

    bindu Monday, 28 May 2018 08:44 AM

    Journalist is right. Now his supporters will come from the Flower Bud to see him.

    BuffaloaCitizen Monday, 28 May 2018 08:47 AM

    The dispenser is a true Hero.

    Jagath Leanage Monday, 28 May 2018 09:19 AM

    Everybody should remember that " power " is a temporary thing and one day has to be in powerless .

    Rasheed Monday, 28 May 2018 11:21 AM

    Dispenser immediately transferred, but if Dispenser was attacked then they would have appointed a special committee to probe the incidence. This is law in Sri Lanka.

    ifaz fawz Monday, 28 May 2018 11:51 AM

    He deserves it...

    Citizen Monday, 28 May 2018 01:13 PM

    FYI the dispenser is Lady...!!!!

    sanoj Monday, 28 May 2018 01:22 PM

    I once saw a movie where a dispenser came alive and attacked people too. Pretty terrifying.

    Lansiyar Monday, 28 May 2018 01:41 PM

    Should have taken him out for once ..

    Chanaka Tuesday, 29 May 2018 10:46 AM

    People have already forgotten that we finished a 30 year long war because of the Mahasohon Balakaya,! They r our true hero who gave their lives to protect us. Because of them we are today alive. So please respect these people!
