Security had been tightened in the Dharga Town area in Aluthgama by deploying Special Task Force personnel, following three employees carrying on fumigation during the ongoing Dengue prevention campaign in Dharga Town came under assault inside a hotel allegedly by the hotel owner yesterday.

Police said the owners of the hotel had assaulted the three men after locking them up inside the hotel forcing them to pay compensation for food that were rendered unfit for consumption by fumigating the hotel.The injured were admitted to the Aluthgama hospital and then transferred to the Nagoda General Hospital.

Later the police had come to the scene and rescued the three employees. Police and the Special Task Force (STF) stepped up security in the area to prevent any possible incident of violence in the wake of the alleged assault. However, the police said the parties agreed to come to an amicable settlement. (Sarath Siriwardene)

    The case was settled after the PHI paid 25,000 rupees to the shop owner, apparently the PHI was under the influence of liquor and it is said that he was helping out a fellow shop owner who was his competitor.

    The PHI officer who was fumigating went inside the hotel and sprayed the smoke and was under the influence of liquor. Can he continue selling foods that were fumigated to the general public? Some were screaming like they have witnessed the scene.
