Eight suspects, including mathematics tutor Dinesh Nuwan Amaratunga, who surrendered to the court over an alleged attack on a van at Kalagedihena, has been remanded till July 29 by the Attanagalle Magistrate's Court today.

The Police said the mathematics tutor and three others surrendered to the Attanagalle Magistrate's Court today over the incident.

Four suspects were arrested over the incident after they surrendered to the Colombo Crimes Division (CCD) earlier.

The incident was reported from Kalagedihena on Thursday in which the suspect’s private security personnel had attacked a van for allegedly not allowing their convoy to overtake.

The attack, captured on camera, had taken place on the Colombo - Kandy Main Road at Kalagedihena and the footage also shows that a Prado vehicle (CAG-0550) and a Defender (CAD-8850) were involved in the incident.

It was revealed that the Prado is registered under the name of Dinesh Nuwan Amaratunga who is a resident of Ingiriya, while the Defender is registered under the name of Udam Indula Sampath Bandara Amaratunga, also from Ingiriya.

The Defender was found from Elhena Road Maharagama on Friday.(Darshana Sanjeewa Balasuriya)

    What happened to his 'VIP' status? You all reported as a VIP escort. This is what happens when everyone who needs and does not need a vehicle starts buying cars! They become VIP and then even fix that blue and red 'namal light'

    Now that is right. Go for the root cause. The same should be applied to politicians.

    How does a maths tutor own a 40mn rupee prado? and why does he need bodyguards??

    You don't know much do you Junior? They are the biggest money spinners! A Prado is an understatement. As for bodyguards, well everyone was referring to him as a VIP, so be it. And if there is a comment referring to them as 'non entities' - it won't get published

    I don't think our judicial system will look into his wealth and source because he is not a Muslim!, however if he had carried a name tag similar to Shafi, by now it would being chaos by our monks.

    Why would a tuition master require VIP bodyguard? Looks like a pretty luxurious life with comfy vehicles and security. How does he pay for all that, I have the answer - he doesn't pay taxes on income from tuition classes.

    I do not approve Maths Tutors earning so much. But as a parent I understand the service they provide to our children is immeasurable. For our school teachers are very poor in teaching Maths and they hide behind this wasteful teacher qualification. But the Maths tutors are not bothered about acquiring teacher qualifications but they have excellent University Academic qualifications and the natural gift and drive to teach Maths the best possible way.I sent my son to one of the top schools in Colombo and at the A/L he was struggling with Maths until I was lucky enough to find a Maths Tutor for him, and in a very short time my son became the top Maths student in his class.
