“It Wasn’t Me” – Ranawaka

Megapolis and Western Province Development Minister Champika Ranawaka has called for an impartial police investigation over an accident at Rajagiriya that injured two youth on Sunday.

The minister’s call came amidst claims by certain factions that it was Ranawaka who was driving the vehicle at the time of the incident.

The accident left one person critically injured. However, Ranawaka said that following the incident, the driver of the vehicle, who is an employee at the ministry had surrendered himself to the police. He added that several news media had reported the incident by distorting the facts.

“We are confident that the police will conduct an impartial investigation over the incident,” he said. The vehicle which was involved in the accident belongs to Ranawaka’s ministry.
