In another nightclub brawl non-cabinet Labour Minister Mervyn Silva`s son Malaka had on Thursday night allegedly attacked a Finance Director of a leading commercial institution.
The victim Chaminda Senasinghe`s brother, UNP Western Provincial Councilor Sujeewa Senasinghe told the Daily Mirror his brother had gone with a young German lady to a night club in Bambalapitiya for dinner when Malaka Silva and about ten others had allegedly assaulted him.
`The German lady was feeling down due to the tragic death of her boss` son and had gone to the night club with my brother. As they entered the club, Malaka had walked up to my brother and started hitting him.
My brother who returned to Sri Lanka after a long stay in the US is clueless about what happened to him. He is now being treated at a private hospital in Colombo with 13 stitches on his face.`
Meanwhile, Bambalapitiya Inspector Abeyratne Dissanayake said at around 11.30 pm on Thursday, Malaka had come to the police station to lodge a complaint that Chaminda Senasinghe had hit him on his face and he was suffering from a headache. Police had advised him to get himself admitted to hospital. The Inspector said at 1.30 am on Friday a person identifying himself as Chaminda Senasingha had come to the police station and lodged a complaint saying the Minister`s son and several others had assaulted him. Some months ago Malaka Silva was allegedly involved in another night club brawl. He was produced in court and discharged after being warned that he must behave in a better manner.
