Aman Azwer has fled the country and he will be arrested once he returns, said the OIC of Pottuvil police.
The politician’s son is wanted in connection with a shooting using an air rifle at a paddy field at Kandam in Pottuvil on June 08.
A youth identified as Senulabdeen Mufaz was injured in the incident and had undergone surgery at Akkarapattu Hospital.
Due to intimidation, hospital authorities discharged him, according to relatives, who accuse a doctor related to the Azwer.
The injured youth has now been admitted to Ampara Base Hospital as his condition remains serious.
