Danushka was suspended over harassment charges?

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has announced that Danushka Gunathilaka has been suspended from all forms of international cricket for breaching the ‘Player Code of Conduct’, pending inquiry.
In a statement yesterday (22), SLC said "the decision to suspend the player was taken following an initial inquiry conducted by Sri Lanka Cricket, after the team management reported that the player had violated the ''Code of Conduct'."
The suspension will come into effect immediately after the conclusion of the ongoing 2nd Test versus South Africa. The board will also “withhold Gunathilaka’s fee for the ongoing Test match until the outcome of the inquiry”, it said.
According to internal sources of Sri Lanka Cricket, it is said that the suspension follows a police complaint which cites that Danushka had harassed a woman during the second Test against South Africa.
