This is a politically motivated case; the Magistrate has realised that the incident took place in a melee and proper evidence can be an issue.
It is best that the case be closed; there’s peace in Kelaniya due to effective leadership of Dr Mervyn Silva. The citizens of Kelaniya must be allowed to enjoy this peace.
