Four monks to be arrested

The Colombo Fort Magistrate has ordered the arrest of four Buddhist monks and produce them in court over charges of causing damage to state property.

The police notified the court that four monks had been identified over causing damage to state property during the protest by the disabled soldiers last year.

Accordingly, summons were issued against Ven. Bengamuwe Nalaka Thera, Ven. Iththekande Sadhdhatissa thera, Ven. Magalkande Sudantha Thera and Ven. Medille Pagngnaloka Thera.

Meanwhile, Ven. Agulugalle Siri Jinananda Thera who failed to appear in court earlier and was issued a warrant, was also present in court today.
