Various views are expressed concerning the incident in which a young couple traversing the Kalutara pedestrian bridge were killed yesterday.
The pedestrian bridge runs parallel to the Kalutara Bridge.
Although rumours were rife stating that the couple had committed suicide by drowning themselves in the kalu ganga, police differ by stating that a ruptured wooden foot board had caused the accident.
However our news team was able to contact General Manager of railways B.A.P. Ariyarathna.
According to Ariyarathna a committee headed by two senior officers of the railways department have been deployed to probe investigations into the incident.
Moreover the views of Police Media Spokesperson Ajith Rohana were sought to find out the manner in which police investigations regarding this incident were proceeding.
However when inquired by the Kalutara North police which is carrying out investigations in this regard, it was noted that couple were in a relationship since 4 years back.
The consent of the parents had also been obtained while plans were underway for them to get married in future.
