Ex-MP’s son flees country to evade arrest Featured

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of the son of former Ampara district MP Abdul Aziz.

Aman Azwer has fled the country and he will be arrested once he returns, said the OIC of Pottuvil police.

The politician’s son is wanted in connection with a shooting using an air rifle at a paddy field at Kandam in Pottuvil on June 08.

A youth identified as Senulabdeen Mufaz was injured in the incident and had undergone surgery at Akkarapattu Hospital.

Due to intimidation, hospital authorities discharged him, according to relatives, who accuse a doctor related to the Azwer.

The injured youth has now been admitted to Ampara Base Hospital as his condition remains serious.
