The court today ordered to immediately arrest nine suspects including former Chairman of the North Central Provincial Council T.M. Siripala, former Anuradhapura Mayor H.P. Somadasa and former Chairman of Rajangana Pradeshiya Sabha Saman Nilmini.  

The suspects have been accused of hurling a bomb at the house of UNP District membership promotion officer Ananda Veragoda and damaging his property.

An arrest warrant was issued 12 days ago by the Thambuttegama Magistrate Bandara Ilangasinghe, however, no arrests were made in connection with the incident.

The bomb attack was carried out on December 19, 1999 during the Presidential election campaign period.  

However, a fresh complaint was filed with regard to the incident citing that action was not taken due to political pressure during the previous regime.
