Moratuwa Municipal Councilor Sajith Duminda Peiris of the Jathika Hela Urumaya who contested the Local Government polls under the United National Party ticket was assaulted by an unknown group last night (Mar. 26).
 
Duminda Peiris and his elder sister were both injured in the attack and they were hospitalized. 
 
The organizer for Podujana Peramuna in Katukurunda was arrested in connection with the assault.
 
Meanwhile, the inaugural session of the Chilaw Urban Council was postponed indefinitely due to lack of a quorum.
 
Chilaw Urban Council has 7 councillors from the UNP, 6 from the SLFP, 6 from the Podujana Peramuna and one from the JVP.
 
As North Western Local Government Commissioner C. W. Jayasinghe informed that the session cannot be convened without the presence of 50% membership, a tense situation erupted in the council.
