Arrested for trying to meet Mahinda carrying a sharp object

A man was arrested last night for attempting to meet former President Mahinda Rajapaksa at his official residence on Wijerama Road, Colombo 07, carrying a sharp object.

The suspect is Asanka Jayamal Weerasinghe, a resident of Imbulpe, Balangoda. Born in 1992, this person had also been a monk at the Belihuloya area temple for some time.

He had wanted to meet the former President and when he was refused, he had taken out a sharp object from his bag and threatened to cut his throat.
He was later arrested on charges of unlawful entry.
