3 remanded for promoting chicken stall with calendars of Ruwanweli Stupa picture Featured

Three persons have been sent behind bars until tomorrow (27) for having used a picture of Ruwanweli Stupa to promote a chicken stall they are running at Pulugupitiya in Ratnapura.

The suspects are two brothers, Mohamed Nilam and Mohamed Risan, and the manger of Anura Printers in Kurunegala.

The two brothers, who had bought the chicken stall a few months ago, printed calendars with the picture of the Stupa and the name of their business, and distributed them to customers.

Buddhist clergy and laity complained to Ratnapura police, who raided the place, found 50 of the calendars and arrested the three men.

They were produced before Ratnapura acting magistrate Priyanka Gunawarnasuriya on December 24.
