A soldier and two police officers who were arrested in connection to an incident where a firearm  was brought to a meeting attended by the President were released on bail on Monday June 1, after they were produced before the Angunakolapelessa Magistrate’s Court.

A soldier of the Sri Lanka Army was arrested recently for attending a Sri Lanka Freedom Party meeting in Angunakolapelessa with a firearm.

Police then said that the soldier had identified himself as accompanying Parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa.

Subsequent to an investigation, the ASP and two police officers in charge of the security were arrested. When the trio were produced before court on Monday, the Angunakolapelessa Magistrate ordered that they be released under strict bail conditions.

They were each fined Rs.25,000  and two sureties of  Rs. 200,000 each.

The magistrate also ordered for the suspect to appear at the CID in Colombo every Sunday and postponed the case to July 14.
