The case was filed against three accused former Minister Ranawaka, his driver Thusith Dilum Kumara and Assistant Superintendent of Police Sudath Asmadala, on charges of fabricating and concealing evidence.   
The indictments including 16 charges were filed against all three accused on charges of fabricating false evidence, a conspiracy of fabricating evidence and submitting false reports to the Court.   The main charge is related to conspiring and fabricating false evidence to claim that it was Dilum Thusith Kumara who was driving the vehicle which caused the accident and another charge relates to him allegedly conspiring to conceal evidence in order to protect MP Patali Champika from legal action.
