Four suspects were granted bail after being produced before Colombo Chief Magistrate Gihan Pilapitiya on charges of stealing a duck kept for public viewing at the Vihara Maha Devi Park in Town Hall, Colombo.

The suspects Ashraf Ali Mohamed, Mohamed Abdul Rahim, Mohamed Fahmy Mohamed and Ahamed Najibdeen were arrested by Sergeant Jayalath (24025) of the Cinnamon Gardens Police who was on sentry duty at the park.

The sergeant saw the suspects standing near the pond and covering an object in a suspicious manner with a piece of cloth. On checking he had found that the object was the duck that was in the pond.

Magistrate Pilapitya released the four suspects on a Rs.5,000 cash with a surety of Rs.100,000 each. He directed the Police to file charges against the suspects on November 16. (T. Farook Thajudeen)
