Former director general of the Media Centre for National Security, Lakshman Hulugalle, speaking to Daily Mirror a short while ago denied reports that he had attempted suicide and said instead that he was at home and in good health.

“The media can’t kill me. I’m above the media. This is also another media circus. I'm at home and well. If I took poison I would be dead by now. It is the media who are making up this entire story,” he said.

When asked whether he had visited any hospital during the day for any other ailment, Hulugalle said that he did not have to keep the media informed about his visits.

“Why should I tell the media when I go to hospital or for what purpose I do so? I don’t need to do that," he said.

However, when Daily Mirror contacted the Lanka Private Hospital in Colombo around 9 pm yesterday, the hospital authorities confirmed that a person named ‘Lakshman Hulugalle’ was in hospital receiving treatment at that time.
