‘Podi Lassi’ remanded until Oct. 25

The Galle Magistrate's court today (17) ordered to remand underworld figure Janith Madusanka de Silva alias ‘Podi Lassi’ until Oct. 25.

On June 26, a group of inmates at the Boossa Prison launched a hunger strike calling for more facilities to be provided and underworld members ‘Podi Lassi’ and ‘Kosgoda Tharaka’ had levelled threats when a group of officials of the Department of Prisons visited the prison to look into the incident.

The CID had therefore produced the inmate before court today. Security was beefed up in the area since morning and the suspect was brought to court amid the tight security of police officers and STF personnel.
