Another powerful Cabinet Minister, representing the government, has intervened to release a suspect, who was arrested by Police, in connection with an assault on a Policeman.
Civil Aviation Minister Priyankara Jayarathne, has staged a protest in front of the Karuwalagasweva police, demanding the release of Karuwalagasweva PS Deputy Chairman Chaminda Ruwansiri, who was arrested for assaulting a Police officer.
Along with the Deputy Chairman, a few other suspects, who were also allegedly involved in the assault, have been arrested by Police.

During the protest, the Minister literally threatened the Police to release the suspect.

This came just a few days after goons assaulted a police constable who gave a speeding-ticket to Deputy Minister Hemal Gunasekera, on the Southern Highway.

The deputy chairman of Karuwalagaswela PS has now been released on bail. The other suspects, the Police said, would be produced before the court today (09).
