Five persons including MP Mahindananda Aluthgamage's son, who were granted bail yesterday over the hit and run accident in Bambalapitiya, had been released today.

They were remanded until today as they failed to fulfill bail conditions.

The Bambalapitiya Police arrested eight suspects over the accident in which Borella Police Traffic OIC was injured when the motorcycle he was riding got hit by the Defender vehicle at the R.A. De Mel Mawatha Baudhaloka Mawatha intersection on Sunday.

Seven persons including a female were granted bail with two sureties of Rs 500,000 on each suspect by Colombo Additional Magistrate Isuru Neththikumara and only two individuals were released yesterday.

The driver of the Defender vehicle was remanded till March 11.

    Why 7 people were arrested, how many stirring wheels does that defender have

    This is absurd. Expect to see more of these incidents if money is a bigger priority than people's lives. Shame on the police.

    Correct, if politically connected anything is possible. The great shame of Sri Lanka.

    They should have been interrogated separately one after the other and then again to fill the gaps to find the driver. A person volunteering to be the driver is a person planted and may not have been in the car at all.

    This appear to be partial investigation against an injured brother officer. Imagine if it was citizen Perera who was injured. What a joke

    Every day ordinary people take the risk of being killed and maimed by Sri Lanka's political elite ,who consider themselves above the law ,and have for generations abused and exploited the law for their own personal gain .Stamp all this out by voting for a new breed of politicians,if you can find them
