February 02, 2015

The Colombo Magistrate today ordered to further remand UNP Parliamentarian Palitha Thewarapperuma until February 6.

The UNP Parliamentarian was earlier remanded over charges of making opposition PS Member Murugan Pushpakumara kneel in public and attacking a political meeting of the opposition.

Thewarapperuma's unruly behavior was captured on a video footage which was released to media by the Sri Lanka Freedom Party.

Police complaints were lodged with regard to the incident by former Minister and UPFA Parliamentarian Mahinda Samarasinghe.

Thewarapperuma’s motion requesting bail was rejected by the Colombo Chief Magistrate on January 26.
