JVP offices burnt down in Galle, Matara

[TamilNet, Saturday, 19 September 2009, 07:27 GMT]
Two election offices of the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) located in Seenipella and Kiriveldeniya in Galle and Matara districts were set on fire Thursday night by unidentified gang suspected to be ruling UPFA supporters. JVP member of the Mulatiyana Pradeshiya Sabha and Matara district provincial election candidate Ajantha Gammedda complained to the police that the furniture and several banners in the two offices were destroyed by the fire.

In another incident the Akmeemana Chief organizer of the ruling UPFA Nishantha Mutuhetti was arrested by the Police after he attacked an office of actress Anarkali Aakarsha who is also contesting from the same party in the same district for the upcoming PC elections.

The arrest came hours after Mutuhetti surrendered himself to the Galle Magistrate court over an allegation that he had threatened Anarkali.

He was given bail later.

He and his supporters thereafter attacked the office at Magalla. The Police also had been attacked, but residents had overpowered them and handed over to the police.

Mutuhetti is a former PC member and has been opposed to Anarkali contesting from the same district.
