Remanded Kurunegala hospital doctor Saafi Shihaabdeen left court last night after fulfilling bail conditions.

Heavy security had been deployed around the Kurunagala Majistrates court premises yesterday.

Police riot control unit, special task force  and police had been deployed for this purpose. 

Issuing the bail order , Kurunegala Magistrate Sampath Hewaawasam said that the bail order was being given as there was no objection to it from the CID.

Similarly, the Magistrate said that CID’s assurance of the continuation of the investigations regarding Dr. Saafi Shihaabdeen was also a reason for granting bail.  

Kurunegala Magistrate Sampath Hewawasam also pointed out that it was possible to file another case against the doctor, if at the investigations submissions were put forward against him.

Similarly our court reporter said that in the country’s legal system there was legal provision to take action if Dr. Saafi Shihabdeen applied pressure on the witnesses or the victims.

Accordingly, the doctor was released on four personal bails each adding up to 2.5 million rupees and a cash bail of 250 thousand rupees.

The case will be taken up again on the 9th of August.
