“Those who were against me becoming the prime minister have used my son’s incident to destroy me. My son has never told that I would become the prime minister next month. Boys and girls fought with each other at the beach. It is not a big incident to talk about,” said the Secretary General of the SLFP and Minister of Health Maithripala Sirisena to the media.
“The DIG’s son had undergone surgery for one of his hands a few months ago. The photographs have been taken focusing on that hand. I was present at the scene when the incident occurred. DIG’s son said at the moment there was nothing to worry,” said the Minister adding that he would make a special statement today (27th).
When journalists asked DIG Ravindra Waidyalankara regarding the condition of his son he had said his son’s wounds had to have five stitches and there were several bumps on his head. He said they were not old wounds.
The Minister’s son and the other 12 suspects have been released on police bail.
