Police Spokesman DIG Ajith Rohana said the police have initiated an investigation into the widespread video footage and the Peliyagoda Police traced the suspect .

The incident took place at Nuge Road in Peliyagoda.

Accordingly, the police arrested the man for offering and allowing a 4-year-old child to drink beer from a beer cannister.

The spokesman said the suspect would be produced before the Court.

"According to the existing legal provisions in the country, if a person was found offering excisable beverage or material or tobacco substances to a person below 18 years, is an offence under the Sri Lanka law," DIG Rohana said.(Darshana Sanjeewa Balasuriya)
