A UPFA member of the Mirigama Pradeshiya Sabha Jeevan Ariyarathna says that a group of policemen assaulted him during a musical show held at the Nittambuwa Public ground yesterday.


The PS member is currently receiving treatment at the Gampaha Base hospital.


When contacted the hospital director, Dr. Sugath Dharmarathna said that the PS member was assaulted in his ear, so he was directed to the ENT section to test where there are internal injuries.


Ariyarathna further told our news team that a policeman started assaulting him first and later the other policemen on duty around joined their counterpart in the assault.


When contacted the Nittambuwa Police, a spokesman said that a complaint has been received with regard to this assault, and investigations have already been initiated in this regard.
