The police yesterday arrested a person for assaulting a photographer outside the Fort Magistrate court as UNP MP Patali Champika Ranawaka was about to be brought out of the court.

The man wearing a blue T-shirt went berserk alleging that the media caused problems to their minister.

The police arrested him. Later he was identified as Manjula Perera, who recently introduced himself to the media outside the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) as a representative of Swiss Embassy employee Garnia Barister Francis now in custody over false claim of being abducted.

Manjula Perera was identified as a son of UNP Gampaha District organizer Bevan Perera.

UNP lawmakers and other party supporters at the Fort Magistrate court premises declared that Manjula Perera was not with them. (SF)
