The Supreme Court ordered to serve summons on former defence secretary Hemasiri Fernando and IGP Pujitha Jayasundera who is currently on compulsory leave to appear before Court on May 21st.

The order was given after considering a petition by a parent who complained that his two children were killed in the suicide bomb blast at Kochchikade church last Easter Sunday.

The petition was taken before Justice Prasanna Jayawardana, Justice Murdu Fernando and Justice Gamini Amarasekera.

Appearing for the Attorney General, the State Counsel informed Court that the Attorney General will appear neither for the IGP nor for the former defence secretary.

In the complaint, the petition, Saman Nandana Sirimanne further pointed out that right action should be taken against the IGP and the Defense Secretary at that time under the Penal Code as both of them were aware of the deadly bomb blasts beforehand.
