The official pistol and mobile phone of the Army Major who was injured due to an alleged assault by Malaka Silva had been handed over to the Slave Island Police Station by the driver of Mr. Silva, police said. They also said that they were conducting investigations to arrest Malaka Silva and six  others who had been clad in uniforms similar to the Ministerial Security Division (MSD).

Police Spokesman Ajith Rohana said Malaka’s driver had told police that the pistol and the mobile phone of the Intelligence Unit Army Major had been found on the floor of the Jaic Hilton premises where the incident took place.

Slave Island Police have launched an investigation according to the complaint made by the victim Army Intelligence Officer that his pistol, mobile phone and gold chain were snatched by Malaka Silva and former Minister Mano Wijeratne’s son after assaulting him.  

The Army Major, who was at the National Hospital, was transferred to the military hospital yesterday.(Srinath Prasanna Jayasuriya and Indika Ramanayake)

    These thugs and their offspring thugs cannot be punished for their crimes because of their connections to powerful politicians. The only way to eliminate them is for a VIGILANTE movement to be created to deal with such thugs. The VIGILANTE movement can comprise of ex Military personnel who are trained to catch terrorists - which will make their task easier to catch these petty thugs who must be hiding under their parents' sarongs by now. They must be hounded and exterminated from our society. They are a cancer in our society - and the peace loving Sri Lankan public cannot take their nonsense anymore.

    The joke for the day. Does any sane person believe this. Check in the boats along the beaches.

    Yes Sri Lanka. A proud boast "A land like no other"

    What a noble quote.

    You have a point there. I agree.

    This beast's fate will be so sorrowfull and tragedy. Deserve capital punishment.

    sizzler Tuesday, 11 September 2012 07:43 AM

    Dear Readers, do you all think that Mr. Malaka Silva has done this. After all he is one of the secretaries to the Minister Mr. Mervyn Silva a well reputed person among the general public and who came to power with more than one hundred thousand votes from the Gampaha Electorate. So please dont put the blame on our Hon Minister's son because he will not do such dirty work.

    Ran banda Tuesday, 11 September 2012 04:55 PM

    when he is caught he might not remember anything

    Senaratne Tuesday, 11 September 2012 05:15 PM

    You have not given full honour to this Minister.

    You should say Dr. Mervyn Silva (as he claims) and Mr. Mervyn Silva.

    rohan Tuesday, 11 September 2012 11:57 AM

    the police are with the feeding bottle trying to locate him.

    Roshana Ahamed Tuesday, 11 September 2012 07:43 AM

    Why waste valuable resources trying to 'hunt' him? It's not like the police are going to arrest him!

    Not Pot Tuesday, 11 September 2012 07:57 AM

    He will be arrested and released, by his fathers goons. Then the Major . K.F.C.will be charged for AWOL .Malaka cant remeber anything like Duminda Aiyya .MR and GR very happy no comment..All is well in Silly Lanka.

    MR Tuesday, 11 September 2012 05:24 PM

    Making the army mad is a bad plan.

    Hussain Wednesday, 12 September 2012 07:10 PM

    Its great pity that the army officer did not open fire and kill this thug, once and for all. They are behaving just like Saddam Hussein's sons in Iraq, before they were gunned down.

    ANON69 Wednesday, 12 September 2012 07:14 PM

    It is Ranil's fault.

    hb Tuesday, 11 September 2012 08:11 AM

    This bogus “hunt” is only till the next few days to hoodwink the commonwealth parliamentary delegates that law in this country applies equally to all.

    Everyone knows that nothing will happen to minister’s son even if he wipes out an entire battalion of the Army.

    Miracle of Asia indeed!!!

    Another Paper published a photo of Malaka worshipping the Buddha Relics in Kelaniya. Who says he cannot be found?

    Malaka has just worshiped the relics at Gangaramaya. Please arrest him if you can.

    Ajith Rohana Tuesday, 11 September 2012 12:08 PM

    We have employed Police officers everywhere (other than the places Malaka frequents) to arrest him immedietly.

    Siripala Tuesday, 11 September 2012 03:14 AM

    Police would have arrested the driver and detained him until Malaka Silva comes to rescue him

    Trehan Munasinghe Tuesday, 11 September 2012 05:12 PM

    The Army should finish him.....

    What a joke, this will be pushed under the carpet like everything else. If they really needed to find him all they have to do is go to his house or check out some holiday destinations around the country.

    I have the same question as Asoka above. If Malaka & other guy were that capable, we did not use government's best against LTTE.

    hb Tuesday, 11 September 2012 08:22 AM

    He had left before the Police got there. Man hunt has to continue until the Commonwealth parliamentary delegates are in Sri Lanka.

    navi Tuesday, 11 September 2012 03:29 AM

    Correctly said, Joke of the day,
    His father is a minister for god sake and always boasting about his bravery and fight against the injustice.what is the country are we living in, and check the security cameras of the car park. You will see what really happened, Please don’t insult us we cant take it any more

    Check whether his father has tied him to a tree for his mischief.

    kolla Tuesday, 11 September 2012 03:53 AM

    Entire incident has been recorded in JIAC security cameras and it reveals what these guys have done. Police go and arrest them what more evidence you required?.

    Sarath Wimala Tuesday, 11 September 2012 12:14 PM

    Normal business in the corrupt, lawless Banana Republic where criminals, murderers, rapists, drug dealers and terrorists who share their wealth are protected. God save former democratic Sri Lanka.

    No AAAA, not parliment member.. now he has the qualification for a minster

    Lankan Tuesday, 11 September 2012 06:16 PM

    This is an insult to the entire army not only to one officer. I don't think SL diffence secatry will let this go easily. Lets see who is more powerful

    Prasanna Tuesday, 11 September 2012 03:55 AM

    Finnaly Major's injury is due to slip and fall !!!

    Sarath Wimala Tuesday, 11 September 2012 12:28 PM

    These doneys promote this type of activity.

    manju Tuesday, 11 September 2012 06:30 PM

    Asoka wake up machan..First note that security personal are well trained and not fight unneasaraly/cheaply and the other thing if this army officer must reconized Malaka..That why officer mention in the statment. If he hit day not only Army officer his whole family will be missing in action.. dont you know this is Banana Rebulic

    Ralph Anthony Kernr Tuesday, 11 September 2012 12:29 PM

    I agree with the comment Joke of the Day. It seems Silvas in power run berserk, leave the country for medication and finally forget the issue, calming to be mentally off balance

    Mangala Tuesday, 11 September 2012 06:48 PM

    Now you all should realize, if Gen. Fonseka in power these morons are in hell. Current leaders do not have guts yet.

    Bandara Tuesday, 11 September 2012 04:01 AM

    We can’t be so quick to be judgmental. Let’s wait until the police inquiry is complete

    PRASANNAJIT Tuesday, 11 September 2012 03:54 AM

    You will find him admitted to a hospital with self inflicted wounds. This will be the same scenario as in the case where he assaulted engineer Senasinghe. We didnt hear any outcome on that case too.

    Senaka Tuesday, 11 September 2012 12:48 PM

    weha Tuesday, 11 September 2012 03:59 AM

    What is there to look for men. go to his place and kanen andan aran inna.
    This looks more like the police wants him to escape before they can catch him so that they have an excuse.

    ramkuumar Tuesday, 11 September 2012 03:47 AM

    police is unable to trace son of minister, who is given MSD protection. 100% purity Democratic country.

    Now it is clear why everybody wants to leave the island - even by risking their lives in small boats!

    Andrezja Tuesday, 11 September 2012 09:13 AM

    Do you really believe this was a fair one on one fight? You think Silva junior has that courage?

    Nodrog Tuesday, 11 September 2012 04:55 AM

    Malaka will probably get himself admitted in hospital claiming assault by the Major.

    Nodrog Tuesday, 11 September 2012 04:57 AM

    Father is fighting to stop goats being sacrificed while son is assaulting officers who were willing to sacrifice their lives for the country.

    asoka Tuesday, 11 September 2012 05:26 AM

    Hey guys how come the army officer could not fight back? Are these guys not trained in combat? Is he an old army officer? I do not understand how he got beaten and ended in hospital? It should have been the other way around this silva guy should have been in hospital.

    Tomorrow we will read the news "The Army major has been arrested".

    Hash Tuesday, 11 September 2012 06:29 AM

    He ll be released anyway... Its just for the headlines :D

    Sapuma Bandara Tuesday, 11 September 2012 03:17 PM

    Police should have had arrested Malakas' driver then and there, when he brought the stuff to the Police Station. That was the right procedure.
    The IGP should take immediate action against the OIC of the Slave island Police Station.

    S.Gamini Tuesday, 11 September 2012 10:54 AM

    If it was an ordinary guy,he would hv been in the cell by now with broken limbs.

    Police hv missed Kelaniya temple!!!!
