Teen singer M .G. Dhanushka, who became popular by singing the song Hiss tin ekak wage apey me givithe malli was released on Rs. 500,000 personal bail by the Colombo Chief Magistrate Gihan Pilapitiya today.

He was charged to have performed on public stages singing the songs of veteran baila maestro the late M. S. Fernando for commercial purposes.

The CID complained to the Magistrate that the suspect had damaged the reputation and the goodwill of late M.S. Fernando by singing his songs in public without permission.

They said Sarath Fernando, the son of M.S. Fernando had complained to the CID that the suspect had infringed the intellectual Property Rights of M.S. Fernando intentionally by performing it in public.

The Magistrate postponed further inquiry for October 14. (T. Farook Thajudeen)
