Highly placed hospital sources said that the wife of the MP would remain in hospital for further investigations.
“She has been physically assaulted but there are no major injuries. We will be carrying out further medical examinations” the source said. Meanwhile MP Palitha Range Bandara has denied assaulting his wife.
“ There was an argument this morning and that was it. She has falsely gone and said that I assaulted her which is untrue. I didn’t assault her. She fell down and that is what she is making out to be as an assault” he said.
When asked if the MP was contemplating divorce he said that he had no such intention.
“ As the old Sinhala adage goes, domestic issues between husbands and wives last only until the pot of rice gets cooked. “ Pawul prashna thiyenne batha idenakan withraine” – so I have no intentions of divorce,” he said.( ISA)
