A man who was injured in a post-election clash between two groups of UNP supporters in the North-Central Province died last morning while undergoing treatment at the Anuradhapura Hospital.
The victim C.M. Priyantha (41) was a resident of Kiriamunakole in Eppawala. Police said these two groups had clashed even during the campaigning period.
Provincial councilor-elect Aruna Buddhika Gunasekara said his brother had been transporting a cut-out in a double cab when he was waylaid and assaulted by the group which supported the candidate who lost at the election. (Athula Bandara and Rohana Chandradasa)
