UPFA western provincial councillor Upali Kodikara, who was remanded yesterday on charges of obstructing the police at the BMICH, attended today’s WPC meeting at Battaramulla escorted by prison guards.

A tense situation prevailed when the councillors asked the Chairman whether there were no provisions to inform him before a councillor was arrested.

However, the Chairman said there were no such regulations to do so. (Darshana Sanjeewa)

    Atleast Rs10,000 waste of Public money for taking him to the Provincial Council. 3 Prison Guards, Vehicle to transport and a Driver. Put him in the jail until released!
