Tuition master arrested over Attanagalla incident

Eight suspects, including the owner of the Prado mathematics tutor Dinesh Nuwan Amaratunga, the owner of the defender Udam Indula Sri Sampath Chandula Amaratunga and two others who had surrendered to the court yesterday over an alleged attack on a van at Kalagedihena, were remanded till July 29 by the Attanagalle Magistrate’s Court.

Police Spokesman SP Ruwan Gunasekara told the Daily News that the other two suspects who had surrendered yesterday were Eriyagamapalle Walawwe Chamara Dilum Kumara Eriyagama and Hettiarachchilage Sanath Akalanka.

Four suspects who had surrendered to the Colombo Crimes Division (CCD) earlier were arrested over the incident and remanded until yesterday.

The incident was reported from Kalagedihena on Thursday in which the suspect’s private security personnel had attacked a van for allegedly not allowing their convoy to overtake.

The attack, captured on camera, had taken place on the Colombo - Kandy Main Road at Kalagedihena and the footage also shows that a Prado vehicle (CAG-0550) and a Defender (CAD-8850) were involved in the incident.

The Police Spokesman said the Prado is registered under the name of Dinesh Nuwan Amaratunga, while the Defender is registered under the name of Udam Indula Sampath Bandara Amaratunga. They are both residents of Ingiriya.

The Defender was located from Elhena Road, Maharagama on Friday.

SP Gunasekara noted that when the previously arrested suspects were produced at the Attanagalla Magistrate’s Court yesterday, the tuition master, owner of the defender and the other two suspects had surrendered to court. They had accepted responsibility for the incident and the identification parade that was scheduled for yesterday had been cancelled.

The Police Spokesman also noted that information had been revealed that the tuition master is studying law and is scheduled to take his oaths shortly. The police intend to initiate legal action against him in a higher court.
