The Colombo Fort Magistrate’s Court refused bail to the first suspect in the assault of a 21-year -old youth at the Kama- Colombo nightclub, after a motion was filed by the suspect’s lawyers seeking bail a shortwhile ago.

C.R De Silva PC and Shanaka Wanasinghe PC appearing for the suspect submitted that their client be given bail because the offence was a bail-able offence and that the suspect poses no threat to the witnesses of the victim

Nalin Laduwahetty PC appearing for the victim said that the victim was to undergo an eye surgery.

Laduwahetty further informed court that various parties were exerting pressure on the victim and his family and also said that there had been attempts to pressurise the hospital in which the victim was being treated.

Three men were remanded including two bouncers of the Kama-Colombo for allegedly brutally assaulting the 21-year-old youth within and outside the nightclub on early Saturday morning.

The Nightclub did not possess a liquor license at the time of the assault and was functioning illegally on July 5, and July 6.

The Daily Mirror learns that the alleged assault on the youth on July 6, was not the first incident in which the security personnel of Kama- Colombo have unleashed violence on guests  with many reports emerging of assaults on them by the ‘bouncers’  employed by Kama- Colombo.( LS)

    "The Nightclub did not possess a liquor license at the time of the assault and was functioning illegally "

    The owner of this joint, Deshabandhu Manawahithawadhi Lankaputhra Dr. Ali Asger Shabbir Gulamhusein was an adviser to the ministry of justice. Ashcharya @ it's best.

    I got sick in my stomach after reading that this Dr. Ghulamhussein and his wife are “advisers” to the justice ministry. The “adviser” to the justice ministry has been operating a nightclub without the required licenses. What a shame. Absolute shit bags.

    Well, talking of the 'innocent' victim, how innocent is he really? Food for thought.
