The incident where popular Singer Saman De Silva was allegedly assaulted by Southern Provincial Council Minister Bindu Weerasinghe during a musical show in Borella last Saturday night was amicably settled at the Borella police station today.

Just before leaving the Borella police station, Saman De Silva told the media that they arrived at a compromise through the mediation of Senior DIG Anura Senanayake.

“DIG Senanayake asked us not to drag this matter any further and after giving his request some thought we decided to resolve this matter. It was to have been taken up at the reconciliation board,” Saman De Silva said.

Provincial Minister Bindu Weerasinghe said Senior DIG Anura Senanayaka succeeded in helping us to reach a compromise while strengthening our mutual friendship.

Sri Lanka Singers’ Association (SLASA) President Madumadawa Aravinda said he was not personally satisfied at the manner in which this incident was settled and assured their support for any artiste in incidents of this nature. (Ajith Siriwardana)

    I am wondering why Saman made such a fuss over this .....since every one knows the end of this drama will be like this ...

    You are mistaken...NOTHING will ever happen to the politico or his goons, it will only be the public who get affected.....

    Can any of the readers keep a count of brutality committed by Provincial Council members of the ruling party?

    In any civilised country this political thug will end up in the boarding house at Welikda.

    Saman you are a big joker in the island. Why don't you make a new baila regarding this. It's very easy. Because this incident also a baila.

    If we can solve issues like this, this world will be a better place.

    mithra Thursday, 05 December 2013 03:49 AM

    Amicable settlement between the two is appreciated. But what about the punishment the politico deserves for harassing public ? He being a representative of people, should be severely dealt with by the party or Govt.office.
    Authorities please take immediate action and set an example for a just society.

    Andrew Pitugala Thursday, 05 December 2013 11:45 AM

    Good example !!! Assault someone and then amicably settle !!!
