UNP Western Province Councillor Duminda Silva and his friends have been accused of attacking foreign guests, including US embassy staff, and smashing up property on Friday night at one of Colombo`s trendy night clubs, ?Clansys?.
The incident followed an argument between the politician and the night club staff.
Cinnamon Gardens police confirmed that they had received a complaint against the provincial councillor and were carrying out investigations.
The Sunday Times learns that the politician is alleged to have broken glasses of the club and assaulted the guests, including a lady attached to the US embassy in Colombo.
Mr. Duminda Silva is presently on bail over a rape case. The club was back in operation yesterday around 11 p.m. after police guards stationed there after the incident withdrew.
This was the second attack on the club by a politician in recent times. Earlier Deputy Labour Minister Mervyn Silva and his supporters were accused of attacking and causing damage to the club.
