 Rajpal Abeynaike the Editor of Lakbima News has lodged a complaint with the Colpetty Police Station stating that he was assaulted at the annual get together of lawyers held at the Cinnamon Grand Colombo yesterday.
 
Abeynaike a veteran journalist speaking to the Daily Mirror online stated that he was assaulted due to the comments he made regarding the former Chief Justice Sarath N.Silva. "This event is a 'lampoon' where people take pot shots at each other in good humour, it’s been so for over a century, I was talking to a lawyer and told him how I think it’s ridiculous that the same lawyers who demonised Sarath Silva when he was the Chief Justice now seem to portray him as a saviour," he said.
 
Abeynaike an Attorney-at- law himself went on to say that, "Another lawyer got involved with the conversation, I must have hit a wrong nerve and he started assaulting me. Irrespective of what I said no one has the right to assault another person, if he doesn’t agree with my views there is a civilised way of opposing it."
 
Abeynaike was also threatened with death during the assault "This individual threatened me with death and all sorts of other things during the assault, I have lodged a complaint with the Colpetty police in this regard" he said.
 
The Colpetty police declined to comment stating that the investigation is pending. (Hafeel Farisz)
