Kneeling issue: Former Uva CM, Principal settle case

The case involving former Uva Chief Minister and now Member of Parliament Chamara Sampath Dasanayake who was accused of forcing the principal of the Badulla Tamil Girls’ College, Bhavani Raghunathan, to kneel down ended yesterday with both sides agreeing on an amicable settlement.

The two sides reached an amicable settlement at the Badulla Mediation Board on Saturday.

According to a complaint lodged by the School principal with the Badulla Police, the Badulla Police had filed a case in the Badulla Magistrate’s Court against the former chief minister.

However, on the advice of the Attorney General, the Magistrate had later directed that the case be referred to the Mediation Board.

Accordingly, both parties had been summoned to the board meeting held at the Sarvodaya Center in Badulla where both sides stated that they are willing to drop charges and go for an amicable settlement.
