A group of artistes today urged the Police to reveal the details of any allegations if there were any made by Samantha Kumara alias Wele Suda against artistes instead of leaving room for speculation and an excuse for gossip mongers to defame them.
Actress Semini Iddamalgoda said according to unofficial reports an artiste had been questioned by the police over alleged dealings with Wele Suda. She rejected any reports of any such involvement by her or actress Lochana Imashi.
“We found that a person named Madushanaka Ganegoda had posted the baseless news item on social network sites. However, he had rectified the news item later but the damage was already done,” she said.
Earlier, reports posted on social network sites by certain individuals had indicated that about six actresses including Semini and Lochana had dealings with Wele Suda.
Ms. Iddamalgoda said she had complained to the CID against the person who had allegedly created the fabricated story but that she hadn’t received a reply so far. She said Police Spokesman Ruwan Gunasekara had informed them the offense did not come under the purview of the CID and asked us to file a lawsuit against the miscreants for defamation.
“I have had bitter experiences, when it comes to lawsuits and I know how long a case can drag on until the final verdict. Therefore I won’t go to courts but urge the Police Chief to look into the matter,” Ms. Iddamalgoda said.
Actress Lochana Imashi, who is about to be married soon, said she was deeply troubled by the news reports and categorically denied the allegations as false and fabricated. (Lahiru Pothmulla)
