5 suspects not identified

Three witnesses in the assault of ‘Rivira’ former editor Upali Tennakoon failed to identify five suspects at an identification parade today (07).

Therefore, Gampaha chief magistrate D.A. Ruwanpathirana ordered bail for Army intelligence Maj. Bulathwatte and four corporals.

These same five will appear for another identification parade on April 12, in connection with the assault of journalist Namal Perera.
