Thewarapperuma Finally Surrenders To Police

UNP Parliamentarian Palitha Thewarapperuma, who made PS Member Murugan Pushpakumara kneel in public, surrendered to police a short while ago.

Thewarapperumawreaked havoc in Agalawaththa, Mathugama, a few days ago when he attacked a gathering of the opposition in the area. He was previously issued summons to appear before Mathugama Magistrate Courts on March 02.

Video evidence clearly showed how the UNP Parliamentarian made Pradeshiya Sabha member Murugan Pushpakumar kneel in public as a punishment. It was alleged that the Parliamentarian had also assaulted the PS member.

UPFA Parliamentarian Mahinda Samarasinghe lodged a complaint with the Police Department over the incident.

“When we set up a party office in my own electorate, a group of thugs led by UNP Parliamentarian Palitha Thewarapperuma, came there and threw rotten eggs at the office,” Samarasinghe said addressing a press briefing at the SLFP Headquarters.

Thewarapperuma’s behavior was in stark contrast to the principles of good governance upon which the present government was formed nearly one and a half weeks ago.
