UPFA parliamentarian Janaka Bandara Tennakoon was today arrested by the CID in connection with a killing that had taken place in 1999.

Police Spokesman ASP Ruwan Gunasekara said the former minister was arrested while receiving treatment at a private hospital in Colombo.

“The CID is conducting investigations into the shooting incident in which a man was killed and another injured at Dambulgamuwa in Matale in December 14, 1999. The CID had asked Mr. Tennakoon to report to its office on Monday in connection with the investigations. However, he had admitted himself to a hospital instead of reporting to the CID,” ASP Gunasekara said.

He said Mr. Tennakoon had been admitted to the hospital on Monday and was undergoing treatment under police protection after his arrest.

The ASP said Mr. Bandara would be produced before the Colombo Chief Magistrate within the next few days.

Meanwhile, his son parliamentarian Pramitha Bandara denied the allegations levelled against his father.

“We are shocked with this turn of events. We are ready to face any political revenge with the support of people of Dambulla,” he said.

    Since 1999 we had Chandika, Ranil, and Mahinda administrations. The case was dismissed long time ago at the magistrate court. If there were documentary evidence why did the police waited this long. This is nothing but a which hunt, for supporting Mahinda. When are we going to stop taking revenge.

    A murder in 1999 and the suspect arrested in 2015. Firstly the law breakers supposed to be law protectors should be punished.

    You are quite right. An investigation should be conducted reg.the cases that have undergone unusual delays to find the cause and effect punishment where necessary. But this produce should go in parallal with the case to avoid any further delays.
