PKW Wijesinghe vs Upali Chandrasiri SC/Spl. 19/2007

15.1.2007, the petitioner was summoned to Wattegama Police Station on a complaint made by his niece regarding an allegation that had he obtained jewellery and a loan of Rs.100,000/- from the said complainant. The petitioner with his Attorney-at-Law Saman Ratnayake and one Jayawardena who is one of his friends went to the Police Station. At the Police Station Saman Ratnayake Attorney-at-Law explained to the 1st Respondent who conducted the inquiry that the complaint of the complainant was regarding a civil dispute and left the Police Station. Thereafter when the petitioner tried to sit on a chair to make a statement the1st Respondent shouted at him saying „who asked you to sit‟ and started slapping the petitioner. At this stage the 2nd Respondent too slapped the petitioner.

For the above reasons, I hold that there is no merit in story narrated by the petitioner in his amended petition. I therefore dismiss the
amended petition of the petitioner. Considering the facts of this case I do not make an order for costs.
