Police media spokesman ASP Ruwan Gunasekara said the incident occurred following a heated political argument between them.

He said Chief Minister Harin Fernando had got admitted to a private hospital with minor injuries while his cousin had also got admitted to a private hospital after both lodged complaints with the Kollupitiya police.

“Both complainants had given statements to the police,” ASP Gunasekara said.    

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Fernando said he had gone to the scene to give an interview to a media organisation when the incident occurred.

“After the interview was over I met my cousin who was a strong supporter of the former president. An argument arose between us based on our different political views.  This led to the brawl,” he said. He  added that  he was waiting for the results of the police investigations into the matter.
